CENSUS 101: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Every 10 years, the results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets. The first census was in 1790.
The distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on census data.
It's against the law for the Census Bureau to publicly release your responses in any way that could identify you or your household. By law, responses can only be used to produce statistics.
This year, you will be able to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail.
