The 2020 Census is closer than you think. Here's a quick overview of what it is and why it's essential that everyone in Sandy Springs is counted.
Everyone counts-The census counts every person living in the U.S. once, only once, and it right place.
It's about fair representation-Every 10 years, the results of the Census are used to reapportion the House of Representative, determining how many seats each state gets.
Taking part is your civic duty-Completing the census is a way to participate in our democracy and say "I Count!"
It's simple-The 2020 Census will take 5 minutes to complete
It's about improving your community-The distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants, and support to states, counties and cities are based on census data. That money is spent on schools, hospitals, road, public works and other vital programs.
