We discuss the history, process and importance of the census for all levels of government and citizens. The census count affects funding for education, health care, transportation, social services and emergency responders, plus services for elderly and people with disabilities. Counting every single person for the 2020 census is critical in determining how federal funding is dispersed annually.
