Why You Should Take the 2020 Census

The Census matters more than most of us realize. The Census results will determine: 

  • How federal money gets allocated to our community for education, housing, job training, healthcare, and more
  • How seats are distributed in the House of Representatives and state legislatures

California Region 10 includes the hardest to count county in California, Imperial, and the 21st hardest to count, San Diego. Getting a full count means making sure we get the funding we need and fair representation.

Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics—they cannot be used against you in any way. By law, all responses to U.S. Census Bureau household and business surveys are kept completely confidential.
