All Children Count - Census 2020

March 12, 2020

The U.S. Constitution requires that every 10 years every person living in the country, regardless of immigration status, is counted.  Your census information is strictly confidential, and your answers cannot be shared with any out government agency.


How does the Census Bureau use the data it collects?

  • To determine how many representatives each state gets in Congress.
  • To determine hoe billions of federal government resources will be distributed each year.
  • To provide funding for educational, health, and social programs available in your community.
  • To increase funding for early care and pre-school programs in your community.


The Challenge

  • Latinos and African-Americans are typically undercounted.
  • Children ages 0-5 are commonly missed in the census.
  • Each person that is not counted costs your community nearly $1,091/year in health and human services programs alone (Reamer, 2018).


Why participate in the Census?

  • Participate in the 2020 Census in order to sustain or increase early care and preschool programs in your community.
  • Ensure your community receives the funds needed for educational, health, and social programs.
  • Businesses use the census to determine where to open and invest, so census data leads to jobs locally.
