THE U.S. 2020 CENSUS: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
The U.S. Constitution requires that the Census Bureau count every person living in the United States once every 10 years. The information collected during the census provides vital data for community planning, ensuring fair political representation and enforcing civil rights, and assigning billions of dollars in federal funding for critical public services such as food stamps, public safety, housing support, and education programs.
We have one chance to make sure that everyone in Rhode Island is represented in Census 2020. Let’s make it count.
