The Census is fast, easy and important!
Please take a few minutes to help your family and community. Every ten years, since 1790, the Census Bureau counts every adult and child living in the country to collect basic information, including: age, sex, and race.
Why is the Census important?
The answers to the Census help determine where billions of dollars in federal money is spent. Your schools, your health care, your transportation, your representation, and your housing are ALL affected by YOUR response to the Census.
And, consider this: In the most recent year for which an estimate is available (2015), California received about $77 billion in Census-related federal money—more than 80% of the total federal funds the state received that year.
