You probably never wondered how Census data helped build your local school, hospital,
or fire station. You might not realize how the Census helps repair the roads or expand
the highways that you travel on your daily commute. What about that new business that
just moved into your town? They also used Census data to identify which community
to invest in.
Once every 10 years, communities across the nation work together to ensure that every
person in every household within in the United States is counted through a coordinated

communities about important aspects of the 2020 Census like the different ways to
participate in the Census and how to avoid fraud and scams.
Mark your calendars for the 2020 Census, which will begin in March, and be on the
lookout for more information and tools that can help your community ensure a bright
