CENSUS

WHAT IS THE CENSUS

The Census is a survey that collects basic information on all of the people in the United States on Census Day, April 1, 2020. The Constitution of the United States requires that our government perform a census every ten years. 

WHY IS THE CENSUS SO IMPORTANT

Census is about money & power. 

For each one of us that gets counted, we bring in $20,000 into our community. This means MA stands to gain $600 billion if we have an accurate count. Here is what this money is for. 

Census data determines: 

  • The allocation of federal funding 
  • Political representation at the local, state, and federal levels, and
  • Critical social services—including health care, childcare, and food and nutrition access—for those with the greatest need.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR LATINOS?

Latinos have been undercounted for decades, disadvantaging their families, communities, and neighborhoods.

Check out the Latinos in 2020 Census Fact Sheet for more information.

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY CENSUS FORM?

In March of 2020, people living in the United States will receive notice through the mail along with a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to go online or call a toll-free number to complete their census. – Fair Count 2020 Census
