CENSUS 2020 INFORMATION

What is the Census?

The Census is an official count of every person living in the United States. The United States Census Bureau counts every person living in the country every 10 years. Information collected from the census is used to make decisions that impact communities for the next 10 years.

 

Why is the census important?

A complete and accurate count is necessary to make decisions about:

  • Funding for schools
  • Funding for roads and transportation infrastructure
  • Funding for healthcare for children, the elderly, and low-income
  • Representation in Congress and the Electoral College
  • Political Redistricting

We need to achieve a full and complete count of all communities to ensure fair representation in Congress and full funding for programs like Medicaid, Highway Planning and Construction, and Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Muslims, immigrant communities, and communities of color have historically been undercounted. Undercounting decreases funding that our communities could benefit from, like funding for schools and healthcare, and undercounting limits our civic voice and representation.

 

Help us make sure every Minnesotan is counted by completing the Census today at: https://2020census.gov/

 

The Census asks for:

  1. The age, race, and gender of each individual in your household
  2. The number of people living at your address on April 1st
  3. Whether you rent or own a home

 

The Census DOES NOT ask for:

  1. Your Social Security Number
  2. Your Immigration Status
  3. Your Bank Information

 

Remember: Census information is private.

Federal Law Requires Your Information Be Kept Confidential for 72 Years.
