BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The Census - which is taken every 10 years - is the official population count of the United States and its five territories: American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 

The data collected from the Census is used by governments from local to federal, businesses, trade associations, and more. It impacts things such as redistricting, locations of new businesses, and federal funding - which goes to public works such as roads, schools, and hospitals.

 

All persons living in the United States are constitutionally required to fill out the Census survey. There are no citizenship-related questions included in the survey.

 

Census data contributes to determining how many seats the United States House of Representatives each state gets.

 

The Census was completed between April 1, 2020 and October 31, 2020. Redistricting data was released August 19, 2021 with the complete summary data tables to be released towards the end of 2021.
