What is Census 2020?
Every 10 years, the U.S. government counts every person, regardless of citizenship, living in the U.S. through the census. The census is a short questionnaire that asks basic information about your household and the people who live in it.
In Illinois for each person not counted, the state loses $1,400 dollars a year in federal money. That’s money used for healthcare, childcare, new roads and housing to name a few. And we have fewer representatives in Congress if we are not counted.
Everyone matters. Everyone Counts. Visit 2020census.gov for more information.
