Every 10 years, the federal government is legally required to count every person living in the country, regardless of citizenship status, as part of the U.S. CENSUS.

  • The government also uses CENSUS data to draw district lines and determine how many seats each state will get in the House of Representatives.
  • The CENSUS is used to determine funding for vital government programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)MedicaidAffordable HousingHeadstart, and more.
