Have You Completed The Census Yet?

US Census
It's important that every Ohioan is counted in the US Census.  But apparently, Ohio ND Cleveland in particular are lacking.  The Census asks questions about you and the people you live with, such as your names, and birthdays.  You can submit the form online, over the phone,  or through a paper version.  It typically takes around 10 minutes to complete. 

We want to ensure our state and our community, specifically, receives the appropriate amount of federal funding to help us support our communities, schools, public safety resources, and to improve our roads. 

The Census determines how the federal government will distribute more than $675 billion dollars to critical state and local programs.  Businesses use the Census data to decide where to build factories, offices, and stores, while real estate developers and city planners use the information to plan homes and improve neighborhoods. 

The Census is the basis of redistricting and reapportioning the number of representatives in U.S. Congress.  The population count helps decide where new schools and hospitals are needed and where to add public safety resources. 

The Census count affects the course of the next 10 years.  The result of this count is multiplied every year that passes, since following estimates are based on the original Census count.
