Did you know that the census provides the basis for reapportioning Congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing $675 billion in federal funding to support state, county, and vital local community programs?
Data from the 2020 census will inform where we build new businesses, how crowded classrooms will be, and even how much federal funding our community will receive to pay for programs such as WIC and SNAP. Additionally, census data is used for attracting new businesses to states and local areas, planning for hospitals and other health services, and designing public safety strategies – all critical to the economic growth of Virginia. It is estimated that Virginia will lose up to $2,000 annually for each person not counted in the 2020 Census – amounting upwards of $20,000 per person over a 10-year period.
