Importance of Census

Why is the 2020 Census important?

The plain and simple answer is: money.
If people in the community are not counted, then the community and state will loose money. According to the George Washington Institute of Public Policy, their document entitled Counting for Dollars 2020, states that “preliminary analysis indicates that about 300 federal programs geographically allocate over $800 billion a year based on census-derived statistics.”
