The results of the Census are used to reapportion the seats represented in Congress for each state.
The Census counts help to create the voting districts within each state.
Your numbers count within your community. Each municipality receives state and federal funding based on population information.
Even though your census information is used to generate graphs and charts it is private and confidential. Nobody but the Census Bureau knows who you are. The information is not shared with other institutions or branches of government.
Postcards will be mailed to most homes in March of 2020 and followed by a letter with information to report online.
