What is the census?
In Article 1 Section 2 of the Constitution, it is mandated that the United States conduct a count of its population every 10 years. The census provides the necessary statistics that lawmakers use to accurately allocate funds for your community. The 2020 census also affects the number of representatives that will be sent to Washington D.C to represent you. We want to make sure that everyone is counted, no matter your citizenship status, demographics or residential status. If you are a student at Texas State, on campus or off, you are required to fill out the census. Even if you think you are meant to fill it out for your home town, where you lay your head at the most is where you should fill the census for.
