Why is the Census Important?
The 2020 U.S. Census is a snapshot of cities, counties, states and the nation. The information collected by the census will help Sacramento County and its diverse communities ensure our voice in government, how much funding our community receives, and data for our communities to plan for today and the future.
Our community benefits the most when the census counts everyone!
