The countdown to the 2020 Census has begun!
The Census counts every person living in the United States every 10 years and the information gathered is critical to the future of our communities.
It’s important that everyone living in Cochise County be counted when the Census begins in March.
Complete and accurate Census data is vital because:
- It determines the number of seats each state gets in the House of Representatives
- Congressional, state and local district boundaries are redrawn after every Census
- The distribution of more than $675 million in federal funds for schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other programs is based on population counts
These are just some of the reasons why your participation in the 2020 Census is vital.
