The 2020 Census counts every person living in the United States and five U.S. territories.
Census results affect your community every day: School lunches. Plans for highways. Support for firefighters and families in need.
An accurate census is crucial to your community; an undercount could result in millions of lost funding, especially for social services. #disabilitycounts2020
The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.
