US Census 2020
Apr 01, 2020 all day
WHY THE 2020 CENSUS IS IMPORTANT TO CALIFORNIANS

2020 is an important year for California and the country – it’s the once-per-decade time that every person in America is counted in the U.S. Census. The census asks questions that provide a snapshot of the nation, and affects how many seats your state gets in Congress, as well as how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed for the following:

  • Schools
  • Health care facilities
  • Roads and transportation
  • Recreation centers
  • Social services
  • And much more!

How exactly does the census impact education and schools? The census count determines the next 10 years’ worth of funds that your community’s schools will receive for special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, school lunch assistance, and so on. If your child is in second grade now, the census count will have an impact on her education until she graduates from high school!

It’s easier than ever to respond to the census. You can respond in 13 different languages, and you can complete it online, by phone, or by mail. Your responses to the census are safe and secure. The law requires the U.S. Census Bureau to keep your information confidential, and your responses cannot be used against you in any way.

You have the power to shape the future for the children of California by helping to ensure that everyone in your community is counted in the 2020 Census.
