Why is the Census Important?
Results are used to help determine:
- How more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities. These funds are spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs.
- The number of seats each state gets in Congress.
- How state and local officials draw boundaries for congressional districts, state legislative districts and school districts.
