Everybody counts in the upcoming census and the stakes are high. Become an educated census taker. Census data will be used over the coming decade to decide where to place parks, roads and hospitals. It will determine funding for community projects that benefit people of all ages, including mass transit, which helps many people remain in their homes longer. In 2016, for example, more than 300 federally funded programs relied on census data to distribute more than $675 billion to states and localities. That includes funds for schools, roads and hospitals and also programs that aid older Americans, like Medicare Part B. Also, the number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the electoral college votes that each state gets, are determined by census numbers. Learn tips to spot census scams.
