United States Census 2020
Research & Studies

The Constitution requires us to count every resident of the United States once a decade since 1790. The census shapes how political power and federal tax dollars are shared in the U.S. over each decade. It determines the number of congressional seats and Electoral College votes each state gets and guides how an estimated $880 billion a year in federal funding is distributed for schools, roads and other public services in local communities.
