Census 2020

The Census is coming in April 2020.  The goal is to count every man, woman and child living in the United States.  The count is very important for each state's representation in the national government.  The numbers will also be used to figure out federal funding for each state with programs such as Medicaid, children's health insurance, transportation, and Head Start.  It is illegal for the census bureau to share ANY information with any other government agency. 

Below is a list or resources to help you learn all you wanted to know about the census:
