The 2020 Census is more than a population count, it will provide a snapshot of our nation – who we are and where we live. It's an opportunity to shape the future as its results will impact communities for the next decade.
Counting our population and households will provide the basis for how many seats in Congress each state gets, and how billions of dollars in federal funding will flow into states and communities each year — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.
Counting an increasingly diverse and growing population is a massive undertaking. It requires years of planning and the support of thousands of people. The Census Bureau can’t do this without the help of local partners such as the City of King City, businesses, nonprofits, faith-based organizations, colleges, schools, and the media. Ultimately, the success of the census depends on everyone’s participation. We’re committed to a complete and accurate count of all King City residents. Remember Everyone counts!
The census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution. Once a decade since 1790, America comes together to count every resident in the United States, creating national awareness of the importance of the census and its valuable statistics. If you live in the U.S., you're required by law to participate in the 2020 Census. A complete and accurate count is critical. For more information, please visit 2020census.gov.
