What is the U.S. Census?

Every 10 years, the United States counts every person living in the country to determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives (a process called apportionment) and also to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities.

Why You Count

For each person counted in Arizona, the state receives $2,959 in federal funding (totaling more than $20 billion per year), which goes toward vital services including schools, emergency services and hospitals.
