Hospitals. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of your community. Each year, the results help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities. It’s also mandated by the Constitution: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.
By April 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the census. You’ll then have three options to respond: online, by phone, or by mail. We’ll mark Census Day on April 1, 2020, with events across the country. This is a key date for the 2020 count: When completing the census, you’ll note where you are living on April 1.
The Town of Sahuarita has formed a Complete Count Committee (CCC) to promote education within the community about the importance of the 2020 Census, and to help make sure an accurate count of our population is taken. For more information on the CCC, and to find resources to share with others in our community, please visit the CCC landing page on our website: 2020 Census - Your Community is Counting on You!
