Stand Up and Be Counted

Census_MN

What is the 2020 Census all about? A complete, accurate census count ensures equal political representation, fair distribution of federal and state funding, and sound planning and investment in infrastructure.

Beginning in March 2020, every address in the U.S. will receive information about completing the 2020 Census. Not completing the 2020 census form could have a direct impact on you and your family. The City of Roseville is committed to making sure every person in Roseville is counted. The 2020 Census will be used for:

  • Funding - Census data guides federal spending of approximately $884 billion to local communities every year. Undercounting in the 2020 Census could impact how federal funding is allocated. For every person not counted in Roseville, approximately $2,800 in federal funding for transportation, education, health care, housing, nutrition and other services is lost each year.
  • Planning - Census data helps federal, state and local governments plan schools, hospitals, nursing homes, police and fire services, transportation and other needs to serve changing demographics. If children are undercounted, money for schools and child care could be lost. If seniors are undercounted, funding for nursing homes and senior health care could be lost.
  • Representation - Census data determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and for districts in state government. Minnesota is at risk of losing a seat in Congress. When communities are undercounted, political boundaries may not accurately represent reality. Undercounting results in residents being denied a full voice in policy making. A community’s needs may not be represented or prioritized according to the real share of the population.

The City of Roseville encourages everyone to learn about the importance of completing the 2020 Census. Visit www.cityofroseville.com/censusinfo or call Roseville Census Coordinator Carolyn Curti at 651-792-7026 to learn what you can do to ensure that every person is counted.
