Getting Ready for the 2020 Census Complete Count Overview Presented by the United States Census Bureau
CONTACT: Eric Chen
Department of Environmental Services
In an effort to promote community awareness and engagement on the upcoming 2020 Census Complete Count, a representative from the United States Census Bureau will be presenting a brief overview on the Decennial Census during the City Council meeting on October 14, 2019. The Decennial Census is the once-a-decade population and housing count of the entire United States as required by the U.S. Constitution. The results of the Decennial Census provide vital information for you and your community.
Each year, the federal government distributes more than $675 billion to states and communities based on Census Bureau data. Communities rely on census statistics to plan for a variety of resident needs including new roads, schools, and emergency services. The Census determines how many representatives each state gets in Congress and is used to redraw district boundaries. Businesses use census data to determine where to locate.
The Census overview will be presented during a regularly scheduled City Council meeting on Monday, October 14, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. in the Simi Valley City Council Chambers, located at 2929 Tapo Canyon Road.
