How the Census Benefits Your Community

The 2010 Census is your community's voice in government.

 "Just like we can’t survive without roads and bridges, the country doesn’t function well without an updated Census to distribute funds to areas that most need them and to support community decisions about their own future."

– – Robert M. Groves, Director of the United States Census Bureau

When you fill out the census form, you’re making a statement about what resources your community needs going forward.

Accurate data reflecting changes in your community are crucial in apportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and deciding how over $400 billion per year is allocated for projects like new hospitals and schools.

That's more than $3 trillion over a 10-year period for things like new roads and schools, and services like job training centers.
