The City of Minneapolis and the 2020 Census

Census 2020 Logo WeCount We Count

The U.S. Census is a count of all residents in the United States taken every 10 years and is required by the U.S. Constitution. It is used to determine political representation and federal funding distribution for governments, including at the state and local levels. In 2020, it will determine how many congressional representatives Minnesota will have for the next decade. Getting an accurate and complete count of all residents is vital. Sign up for the latest We Count news for the 2020 census.
