[ARCHIVED] Census 2020

Why the Census is Important


Census data is used to determine the level of federal funding for programs such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program for Women, Infants and Children (SNAP/WIC), Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and highway and transportation projects.

• Every year, the federal government allocates more than $675 Billion in funding based on census data.

• Every Marylander not counted costs the state approximately $18,250 over 10 years – this equates to the state losing $26.6 Billion (based on historical U.S. Census undercount). Just think of the increased funding for government programs, infrastructure.
