The 3rd-grade at Highland Elementary has put together a video for everyone’s viewing pleasure. I couldn’t agree more with what each student states in this video. This will have a great impact on Eastern Kentucky.
The Census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.
The results of the Census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.
It’s also in the Constitution: Article 1, Section 2, mandates that the country conduct a count of its population once every 10 years. The 2020 Census will mark the 24th time that the country has counted its population since 1790.
If you have not filled out your Census please fill it out as soon as possible.
