Why is it important?
Sitting-out of the Census 2020 process can be costly to all and you can make a difference.
Top 3 reasons you should get counted:
1. Minnesota is at risk of losing a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives
2. One missed person could mean a forfeited $28,000 in funding over ten years
3. Data is used to plan for roads, school, and hospitals
