"2020 is just around the corner and that means another decennial Census will be taken to get an accurate count of the people in America. There is perhaps no other number that is as important as getting an accurate count every 10 years. The results of this counting determines how much of our collective tax dollars our federal government will distribute to every state.
These are the funds that states use to support our schools, our transportation, our healthcare, our elder care, our housing, our small businesses etc. The decennial Census is also used to determine how many Congressional representative seats each state will have. Not having an accurate count means a state could lose the number of elected people who represent them in Congress."
