Your participation in the 2020 Census means #WeCount. The 2010 Census revealed that urban Indians are a hidden minority. By completing the Census, it is our chance to show Oregonians just how strong and visible our Native community is.
The Count starts with you! Complete the Census and encourage your family, friends, and communities to do the same.
WHAT IS THE CENSUS?
The Census is a survey that collects basic information on all of the people in the United States on Census Day, April 1, 2020. The Constitution of the United States requires that our government perform a census every 10 years.
Every 10 years the Census Bureau counts every person in American and that count steers hundreds of billions of dollars for critical services like health care and education, guides the drawing of lines for political districts and school zones and informs businesses and employers about opportunities for growth and economic development.
WHO IS COUNTED?
The Census seeks to count all people residing in the United States at the location where they lay their heads on April 1, 2020. All people mean U.S. citizens, undocumented people, immigrants, children, senior citizens—everyone.
