As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, our nation gets just one chance each decade to count its population. The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution and takes place every 10 years. The information the Census collects helps to determine how more than $675 billion of federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year. Learn more: www.2020Census.Gov.
