Why Take the Census

Did you know if 1 person is missed in our community in the 2020 Census, there is a potential financial loss to the community of $2,082*? This has a significant impact on the resources and opportunities for all residents if you are not counted.

In Kansas, the average household is 2.5 residents. If one (1) "average" household is missed, that can cost a community $5,205 per year. Then, consider that a census won't occur for another ten (10) years - that's $52,050 in lost resources for our community that we rely on. The Census is important and so are you, that is why we need your help and for you to get involved with the Census of 2020! (Data provided by George Washington Institute of Public Policy).
