The U.S. Constitution requires that every 10 years every person living in the country, regardless of immigrant status, is counted. Your census information is strictly confidential, and your answers cannot be shared with any other government agency or individuals (such as a landlord).
Why It’s Important
4.6% of children ages, 0-5 were undercounted in the 2010 Census. Each person that is not counted costs your community moren than $1,000 per year in health and human services programs alone (Reamer, 2018).
