The 2020 Census will soon be upon us, and with it, the opportunity to help shape our community’s future. The census is an official count of every person who lives in the United States and its territories, and is mandated to be conducted every ten years by our Constitution. Within the next few months, every household in America will be receiving a notice to complete a census form online, by phone or by mail. Aggregate data compiled through the census are widely used to help guide investment decisions, distribute federal funding and ensure adequate representation in our democracy. This year, respondents will have the opportunity to complete the questionnaire online. All responses are kept strictly confidential and protected under federal law.
