Counting everyone once, only once, and in the right place.
What is the Census?
Every 10 years, people across the country and in California fill out the Census in order to have an accurate count of all people in the United States. The Census determines California’s federal funding for important community services that help support our families and fair share of representation in California and Washington D.C.
The next Census is in Spring 2020. Let’s ensure all Californians are counted so we can put those resources to good use here at home!
