Census data gathered will determine many important things in the coming decade. It will be the deciding factor in the number of seats Arizona will have in the House of Representatives.
In addition, federal dollars given to the town for things like schools, housing, roads, public safety, healthcare, senior care, and parks, are based on population counts taken during the 10-year census.
But it’s not just about how tax money is spent and distributed. Private businesses also rely on census data to help decide where best to build new factories, offices, restaurants, and stores that lead to job growth and more choices in where to shop and dine for your community.
This year’s census will be more convenient than ever before, with an online form available starting March 12.
Your information will be kept private, and your privacy is protected by federal law. Census information can only be used to create statistical data that benefits your community.
