Census 2020

Census 2020

[3:55 PM] Sharon Patrick

There are only 15 days left to meet the September 30 deadline to complete the 2020 Census.

In 2010, Mississippi’s Census completion rate was 61.3%, and the state lost a congressional seat and millions in federal money.

As of today, Mississippi’s completion rate is 59.3%. Our state risks losing millions in federal funds if all our citizens are not counted.

About the 2020 Census:

  • It’s quick and easy. The 2020 Census questionnaire will take about 10 minutes to complete.
  • It’s safe, secure, and confidential. Your information and privacy are protected.
  • Your response helps to direct billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services.
  • Results from the 2020 Census will be used to determine the number of seats each state has in Congress and your political representation at all levels of government.
