Every 10 years, the United States government conducts the Census — a national accounting of everyone living in every state. Census data is used to determine representation in Congress and the Electoral College, the amount of federal funding to states and localities and can be an important resource in developing your library's strategic plan and services. Public libraries can play a key role in encouraging a complete and accurate count. This page contains information and resources to help you learn more about the Census and how your library can help make sure every person is counted. The Census can be completed online, by phone, or by mail.
