Every 10 years, the Census counts every person nationwide to determine the appropriate allocation of funds and vital resources for our community. Our response helps ensure that more than $675 billion in federal funds is directed each year to the right places to support education, healthcare, public works, and other essential programs. Many decisions about where to send this money are based on census data.
Mississippi County will receive additional revenue because of you! Businesses, community leaders, and local governments use census data to create jobs, ensure public safety preparedness, and support community initiatives that advance quality-of-life. The Census helps determine which areas qualify for the critical resources children and families depend on for the next 10 years.
