Every 10 years, the U.S. Census counts every person living in Minnesota. The next census count is scheduled for April 1st, 2020. The count's results determine the distribution of dollars to Minnesota's communities. It also determines each community's political district lines and representation. This data helps our lawmakers to invest funds and resources into communities. When this day comes around we need to make sure everyone of us is counted. More information on the census will be posted at https://mn.gov/admin/2020-census
