Population Count Will Inform How and Where Billions of Dollars Will Be Spent for the Next Decade
Next time you're on your morning commute, merging on to a freeway or crossing a bridge, think of the decennial census.
Your responses to the 2020 Census, which includes every person living in the United States, may help decide when and where roads and bridges will be built in your community.
Billions of dollars in federal funds (more then $675 billion) are spent annually on critical transportation services in communities across the country, including maintenance and construction of roads and bridges. The decennial census count will inform spending decisions for the next decade.
