Census 2020

2020 Census Image-1Every 10 years, the United States conducts a massive count of the nation’s population. 

Mandated by the U.S. Constitution, the Census directly impacts all of us at the local, state and federal level. That’s why it’s important that every Hampton resident is accurately counted in 2020.

Census results determine how much federal money is allocated for Medicaid, highway planning and construction, Head Start, and much, much more. In 2016, Virginia received more than $17 billion through 55 federal programs — an amount based on the 2010 Census count. It has been estimated that for every person NOT counted in Hampton, the city may lose out on roughly $2000 per person, per year, until the next Census in 2030.

Congressional seats are also apportioned based on a state’s population. Based on the 2010 Census, Virginia now has 11 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. An accurate reflection of the state’s population ensures we are adequately represented.
