Countdown To The Census - April 1st, 2020
Why a “Complete Census Count” Matters
A “Complete Count” can get us fair political representation and our fair share of the federal pie. For the first time, the 2020 Census will be available ONLINE.
Why Is The Census important For Blackhawk County?
Getting a complete and accurate count of Black Hawk County’s population determines our state&/039;s representation in Congress. It also determines the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funding for vital programs and services in education, health, housing, public safety, and transportation.

THE CENSUS IS AN EXERCISE IN GOOD CITIZENSHIP
The Census is a civic coming-together, as valuable to society as jury duty, paying taxes or getting a driver’s license. Everyone who lives in the U.S., even temporarily, like international students, need to fill out the Census. An accurate Census count supports our democracy and is rooted in social justice.
