[ARCHIVED] 2020 Census


Anna Neighbors:

Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a population count, or census, of every person living in the United States and in the U.S. territories, as required by the U.S. Constitution. Not only does the census count people, it also collects information on where they live to provide accurate population numbers for counties, states, and municipalities like Anna. Invitations to respond will reach most of the estimated 145 million households across the country between March 12 and March 20, 2020.

The first census was conducted in 1790. Since that time, a census has been conducted every 10 years to collect basic information about the people living in our households. The data collected is used for statistical purposes only, and the information collected is used to help:
* Guide how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year.
* Determine how many seats each state gets in the U.S. House of Representatives.
* Ensure public services and funding for schools, hospitals, fire departments, and roads.
* Communities plan bus routes, draw school district boundaries, offer community services, plan new homes, and improve neighborhoods.
* Businesses decide where to put stores, offices, or plants to create jobs, support the economy, and to decide what to sell in stores so communities get what they need.
* Redraw the boundaries of congressional and state legislative districts, as well as school and voting districts.

The City will be working hard to promote the US Census Count in the upcoming months and we thank everyone in advance for participating in this critical process.
