Be Counted! Everything You Need to Know About the 2020 Census in Carrboro

Everyone Counts in Orange County

Much of the funding that comes from the Census helps the most vulnerable among us. It provides health care, education, food and nutrition programs, housing and child care for families.

The 2020 Census counts every person living in the United States and five U.S. territories—once, only once, and in the right place. As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, the census is conducted every 10 years by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency.

The population totals from the census determine the number of seats each state receives in the U.S. House of Representatives. The North Carolina General Assembly uses the data to redraw its legislative districts for the state House and state Senate.

The Census has a big impact on the services that Chapel Hill and its neighborhoods receive. That is why we need an equitable and complete count.
