CITY OF MORRISON: Make It Count! Census 2020

Local Government

By Press release submission | Jan 21, 2020


City of Morrison issued the following announcement on Jan. 19.

What is a census and why is it important?

Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States, creating national awareness of the importance of the census and its valuable statistics. The decennial census was first taken in 1790, as mandated by the Constitution. It counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.

An official Census sample questionnaire can be viewed by clicking here.

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting to fill temporary positions to assist with the 2020 Census count. To view job details and to apply, please visit the Census Jobs website.
