CENSUS: WHY IT MATTERSThe Census is Coming March 12, 2020. Make Sure to Get Counted!
- Census Day is April 1, 2020, and the U.S. Census Bureau will be counting people from March through July of 2020.
- In March 2020, every household will receive a mailing from the U.S. Census Bureau with instructions on how to fill out the Census form online.
- The Bureau will only visit homes that do not respond to the Census online.
- The Census determines how an estimated $880 billion a year in federal funding is distributed for critical public services and health care programs, like Medicaid, Medicare Part B, TANF, CHIP, and Head Start.
- In California, that’s $115 billion a year, or approximately $2,000 per person per year.
- A failed Census could jeopardize billions in for our communities for the next 10 years.
- An inaccurate Census could also undermine critical data and information our providers and health care sector rely on to keep us, our families, and our communities healthy and safe.
- The Census also affects the number of congressional seats California will get, so an inaccurate count or undercount could directly result in loss of political representation and power.
