Everyone CountsAbout

The U.S. Constitution mandates that each resident in the United States be counted every 10 years. The U.S. Census Bureau is set to begin mailing out the first census forms on March 12, 2020. The information collected by the census is used to make sure everyone is represented equally and that government resources are allocated fairly. It is also used to help support and make important decisions regarding vital services to families in Manhattan Beach such as road maintenance, public safety, education, and parks.


Why is the Census important?

The 2020 Census will decide how billions of federal dollars are distributed in California. An undercount could impact funding for our schools, health services, child care, emergency services, and many other programs.

The 2020 Census will decide the number of California’s Congressional members and Electoral College votes. A complete count means more people in power who truly represent and advocate for our communities.

 More information can be found by visiting the US Census Bureau website.
