Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States. The Census counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.
Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by sex, age, race and other factors. Northfield benefits the most when the census counts everyone.
The next census is coming in 2020. The success of the census depends on everyone’s participation. The 2020 Census is important for you and your community, and you can help.
