The results of the census determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts. In addition, the census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, corporations and many others use to provide daily services, products, choosing new sites for jobs/businesses and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.
