Census results determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into California to support programs that benefit our communities such as parks, roads, schools, hospitals, health clinics, fire departments and more! For every person uncounted in the census, we lose $20,000 over ten years for our local communities.
The results of the census also determine how many seats in Congress each state gets. All responses are kept anonymous and by law cannot be released, even to law enforcement agencies.
