Why Does the Census Matter?

The upcoming 2020 Census is critical for the future of DeKalb County. The census determines how critical resources and political power are distributed.

Our fair share of over $650 billion in federal funding is at stake. This includes funding for our school, affordable housing, roads and bridges, and much more.

If we are undercounted, we could lose up to seats in Congress, diminishing the power of our voices on Capitol Hill. DeKalb County Complete Count Committee is working to ensure that every DeKalb County resident is counted.
