The U.S. Census is a count of all residents in the United States taken every 10 years and is required by the U.S. Constitution. It is used to determine political representation and federal funding distribution for governments, including at the state and local levels. In 2020, it will determine how many congressional representatives Minnesota will have for the next decade. Getting an accurate and complete count of all residents is vital. The Neighborhood & Community Relations Department leads the City of Minneapolis' efforts to ensure a complete count.
Important 2020 Census update: The new deadline to complete the census is September 30, 2020.
