Census 2020

About the Census

As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, America gets just one chance each decade to count its population. The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution. The data collected by the decennial census determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives (a process called apportionment) and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities. The next Census in 2020 will require counting an increasingly diverse and growing population of approximately 330 million people in more than 140 million housing units. (This information is taken from the U.S. 2020 Census website.)
