Census results have a direct effect on your political power, because they determine how many seats each state gets in the House of Representatives and the makeup of state and local governments. The more accurately your community is counted, the more accurately your community will be represented. 

Your census answers also determine the amount of funding your community will get for public schools, health clinics, fire departments, and more. By participating in the Census, you’re strengthening your community’s future.

New this year: You can participate in the census online! You can also take it by phone or mail

The questions are easy: “Do you own or rent your home?” “How many people live in your home?”, and the whole thing should only take a few minutes.  Only one person per household should take the census.
