You Can Make a Difference!
Come to your neighborhood Library District branch and learn how the U.S. Census will impact your future.
Did you know that the U.S. Census has been conducted every 10 years since 1790? In fact, it is so important that the government obtain an accurate count of the U.S. population that the founding fathers wrote this requirement into the United States Constitution! Their plan was to count every person living in the newly created United States of America, and to use that count to determine how many representatives each state will have in Congress. This is still the case today, which is why it is critically important for every adult in Nevada to complete the census form.
"... it is critically important for every adult in Nevada
to complete the census form."
The census also determines how more than $675 billion in federal funding is allocated to states and communities each year for schools, roads, hospitals, health clinics, emergency services, and much more.
So don’t let Nevada miss out! Attend one of our library-sponsored workshops to get all of your questions answered. The census will begin on April 1, 2020, and end on July 31, 2020, and we want you to be ready.
In addition to English and Spanish, there will be over 60 languages available to complete the 2020 U.S. Census.
