How the 2020 Census Participation is Important

September 24, 2019

How the 2020 Census is Important:

The US Constitution mandates a census every ten years.  Census data is used to allocate states’ representation in the House of Representatives.  Census data determines the boundaries of state legislative districts and the districts of the County Board.  Federal and state governments use census data to award billions of dollars each year to local governments.  Local governments like McHenry County and its municipalities use census data to plan for the future.
