Census 2020 – Why Census Data Matters
Census data is used to influence the distribution of billions of dollars that go to educational agencies that pay for special education, school lunches, improving teacher quality, and Head Start programs.
The information collected determines where community health centers are placed to better serve low-income patients and aid current health disparities, such as those impacted by the opioid crisis.
Companies use the data from the census to determine where to build factories or expand store real estate.
Finally, census data is used to draw the state and federal legislative district lines that ultimately determine the elected officials who represent us.
