Why is the Census Important?

Do you want:

  • Potholes fixes?

  • Expanded mass transit?

  • Bridges repaired?

  • More companies to relocate to Chicagoland?

  • Fair representation in Congress?

All of these and much more are determined by census data! Be Counted. It takes less than 10 minutes.

 

  • Biggest data-collecting activity in the country by a governmental entity

"Each State stands to lose an average of $1,800 per year for each person who goes uncounted. For Illinois, this could be close to $1,400 a person, per year."
