Why should I complete the 2020 census?
Historically, many communities have been underrepresented in census data, including young children, families with low incomes, immigrants, people of color and people experiencing homelessness. If the census misses people, undercounted communities won’t get fair funding for critical programs, and officials won’t have the reliable information they need to make decisions. Unfortunately, some organizations are working to suppress certain demographics from participating in the census. Native, Black, Latino and immigrant communities that are already targeted by systemic discrimination have a much higher chance of being undercounted in the census. We can’t let this happen in 2020.
