The U.S. Census Bureau is promoting the 2020 Census with the focus “Shape your future. START HERE.” The Census Bureau is the federal government’s largest statistical agency that provides current facts and figures about America’s people, places, and economy.
The U. S. Constitution requires that each decade a count or census of America’s population be taken to determine how many representatives each state gets in Congress, and to help distribute more than $675 billion to states and communities like Margate every year for a variety of needs including new roads, schools and emergency services.
In 2020, new technology will make it easier than ever to respond to the Census. For the first time, responses will be made online, by phone as well as by mail.
Completing the Census is mandatory, and by federal law, all responses to the U.S. Census Bureau are kept completely confidential. Answers can only be used to produce statistics – they cannot be used for law enforcement purposes or to determine personal eligibility for government benefits.
