What is the Census?
Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau comes together to count every person living within the United States. The goal for Census 2020, is to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place. Everyone counts.
How Does the Census Benefit Monrovia Residents?
Federal funds, grants, and support to communities are based on population totals and other factors. The data is used to determine how states, counties, and cities across the county will receive a share of more than $675 billion in funding per year. Funding is used for programs in education, transpiration, public safety and much more.
Why is the Census Important?
The Census affects:
- Your voice in government. The census is used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets.
- The measuring of funding California, Los Angeles County, and Monrovia receives.
- How the City of Monrovia plans for the future.
