Mandated by the Constitution, every 10 years America comes together to count every resident in the United States. The Census tallies the nation’s population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support vital programs for states, counties and communities — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.
“The Census provides a snapshot of our community: who we are, where we live, and so much more,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “Being counted is essential to sustaining vital programs in our community for the next decade.”
