Our town, county, school, and state need to be counted in the Census! The Census does not take very much time. If you are staying at home with your children, include them in this as a learning experience.
The USA collects data every ten years. The Census basically counts every person no matter their age or citizenship status. The numbers are then used to determine how many representatives each state has in the House of Representatives.
Our school, like every public school, receives money from the federal government. The Census count helps to determine how much money we receive.
