The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States, and is required by the Constitution to take place every 10 years. The 2010 Census will help communities receive billions in federal funds each year for things like: hospitals; job training centers; schools; senior centers; bridges, tunnels and other-public works projects; and emergency services. People from many walks of life use census data to advocate for causes, rescue disaster victims, prevent diseases, research markets, locate pools of skilled workers and more. The data collected by the census also help determine the number of seats your state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.
