The census determines distribution of funding for the next ten years. The budget will be set on the 2020 Census Count - which has been impacted by the pandemic - and this touches everything in our lives, from schools and hospitals to infrastructure. 675 Billion federal dollars are at stake annually. It also impacts our political voice; the number of congressional seats we will have in the House of Representatives.
