What is the census? As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, the census is a count of everyone living in the country that takes place once every decade. When we know how many people live in our community, organizations and businesses can be better equipped to evaluate the services and programs needed, such as healthcare facilities, schools and roads. It also determines appropriate representation nationally and locally. Learn more at the U.S. Census website.
