  2. 2. CENSUS 2020 Are You Ready To Be Counted? 2
  3. 3. What is the Census? • Every ten years, The United States counts its population. We call this count, the Census. • The goal of the Census is to count everyone in your household once, only once, and in the right place. • The Census will ask for names, age, sex, race and the relation of everyone living in your household. 3
  4. 4. It’s 100% Confidential All personal information given to the Census is 100% confidential. It cannot be shared with other government agencies including Immigration because that’s against the law. If a Census employee violates the law, they can face up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. 4
  5. 5. Why is the Census so important? The Census is important for Fairfax County residents because it directly benefits every resident here. It determines how your tax dollars are distributed in Northern Virginia to better serve you and your neighborhood on a host of issues including: Education Healthcare Housing Infrastructure Roads 5
  6. 6. Did you know our neighborhoods lose money when residents don’t respond to the Census? It’s estimated Northern Virginia loses $1200 in potential annual funding for every resident who does not respond to the Census. 6 That is money we could lose for education, healthcare, housing, infrastructure, roads and a host of other services that the government provides.
