What Is the 2020 Census?

The 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories.

Most people think of the census as a way for our government to update the population numbers every 10 years.  While that is the purpose of the census at its most basic, the data gathered provides much more complex information that can then be used in virtually infinite ways by government, social agencies, non-profits, businesses and more.  Data includes information about family size, where people live, age, ethnic background and income.  Data is used to determine the needs of local populations for infrastructure, education social services and medical services and can be used by businesses and civic organizations to determine where to locate, advertise and fill jobs.
