What is the Census?

The 2020 Census counts every person
living in the United States, as of April 1.
The count is mandated by the Constitution
every 10 years, and the results help to
shape your future in a variety of ways –
from determining the number of seats each
state gets in the House of Representatives
to informing decisions about how hundreds
of billions of dollars are allocated each
year to local communities for vital services
like schools, healthcare, roads and bridges
and emergency response.
 Make Sure Lewis County Counts!

Completing the census only takes a few moments and helps ensure Lewis
County receives its appropriate share of federal funding and representation.

The 2020 Census decides how over $800
billion is distributed to communities across
the country based on how many people live
there. This money is used for important
things that make life better for you, your
family, and your kids for years to come.

Each person counted equals about $2,900
per year for their community. If just 100
people in your area don't participate, your
schools, roads, hospitals and other critical
services lose $3 million over the next 10
years.
