2020 Census For Siena Round Rock

The census is a population count required by the U.S. Constitution once every 10 years, to count every resident – regardless of origin or legal status – in the United States. The census counts everyone living in the country in order to provide an accurate population count that is used as the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting at all governmental levels, and determining how to distribute more than $675 billion in federal funding annually among the states and communities for the next 10 years. These federal dollars support our local schools, healthcare services, transportation infrastructure and systems, and much more.
