Working to ensure a fair and accurate 2020 Census count for Colorado

 

The 2020 Census


The upcoming 2020 Census is critical as almost every aspect of American civic and economic life is touched and guided in some way by Census data. The decennial census is a population count that underpins federal representation, the distribution of more than $600 billion in federal dollars, and billions more in annual private investment.

What that means for Colorado and our communities

We believe the Census is on track for a record undercount that will see many:

  • Shut out of the civic process, particularly the redistricting process.
  • Denied services they need in housing, health, and education.
  • Become invisible to businesses, banks, and programs that help people start businesses and drive personal and community economic growth.
