Did you know that the U.S. Census is used for much more than deciding how many U.S. Representatives Indiana gets in Congress? The official census counts are also used to determine government funding for things like school lunch programs and road projects. Businesses use the census data to decide where to start a new business, and hospitals and other social service agencies use the information to determine what types of services are needed. An accurate count of the number of people living in Dearborn County is critical if we want to have access to all the services and programs that our communities need.
If you haven’t completed your official U.S. Census yet, you’ll need to do it before the end of September. Remember to count everyone who lives at your home; we’re all important. If you didn’t receive a census in the mail, you can complete it by going to: https://my2020census.gov/ The information you report is strictly confidential. The Census Bureau is not allowed to report your personal information to other government agencies.
