Shape Arlington's Future! 2020 Census

Why is the 2020 Census Important?

An accurate census count is important for the Arlington Community in many ways, including:

  • Informing districting to ensure fair representation at all levels of government
  • Providing the most reliable and complete data for research, decision making, and planning for governments, universities, non-profit organizations, medical facilities, and the business community
  • Impacting the federal funding a city will receive over the next decade. More than $800 billion in federal investment across the country is allocated by data gathered from the census. In Texas, for every person that doesn't respond, an estimated $1,500 is diverted to other communities.
