Quick Facts
The U.S. census, mandated by the U.S. Constitution since 1790, attempts to count every person living in the United States. Every 10 years, the Census Bureau gathers information like gender, age, race, and income, and the results not only determine government representation and access to justice, but also access to federal, state, and local funding.
Quick Facts
Literally, millions and millions of dollars are at stake for the programs that help to mend the gaps in our society and allow all to live in dignity. An accurate Census is vital for funding of rural business and industry development; loans; job training and other employment programs; healthcare for infants and children; childcare for low-income and working families; water and waste disposal systems; policing agencies and community-based entities working to reduce crime; monitoring and enforcing discrimination laws under the Civil Rights Act; local agencies for food, healthcare; and legal services for senior citizens and individuals with disabilities.
Quick Facts
The 2020 Census is at risk of significant undercount. Due to a wide variety of factors such as lack of funding, infrastructure challenges, technology barriers in hard-to-count populations, societal pressures, misinformation campaigns and a transition to census counts being conducted online are just a few of the obstacles to an accurate count in 2020.
Quick Facts
Each person uncounted equals a loss of approximately $2,000 per year for ten years in social safety-net benefits. An undercount in Ventura County, and communities across the state and nation, could mean a loss of billions of dollars over the next decade in critical social service funding.
Quick Facts
Ventura County is a wonderful and diverse community that has been identified as #59 in the nation for hardest-to-count counties! Join our efforts to ensure we have a complete and accurate count in 2020.
