Complete Census 2020 Today

Census-2020-Logo-1024x663

This weekend is Census Awareness weekend and we are asking all San Tan Valley residents who have not yet completed the census, to please do so this weekend.

With COVID-19 dominating our world, it's easy to forget that 2020 is a Census year. Six weeks or so since invitations began arriving in the mailbox, 52.6% of Arizona households have completed the census.

Here in Pinal County, we are slightly below that number at 47.6%. If you haven't filled out the census yet, with new online options for completion, it has never been easier.

Why should you complete the census?

The 2020 Census will provide a snapshot of our nation - who we are, where we live, and so much more.

The results of this once-a-decade count determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives. They are also used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

Over the next decade, lawmakers, business owners, and many others will use 2020 Census data to make critical decisions. The results will show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children.

The results will also inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated to more than 100 programs, including Medicaid, Head Start, block grants for community mental health services, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP.
