The Census is conducted every decade and determines the number of Representatives each state has in Congress. Census data is used to distribute billions of dollars in Federal and State funding to help plan for urban and rural land use, housing and public transportation decisions, making business decisions, and research purposes. Being counted brings those resources back to your community. Census data collected is protected by law and must remain confidential, thus the harsh fines and jail time to be served if someone violates confidentiality agreement.
