Everyone Counts in Montgomery

It’s time to get counted! County Executive Marc Elrich and Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro recently launched the United States 2020 Census outreach activities in Montgomery County.

Census Day is Wednesday, April 1, 2020; and Montgomery County’s theme for the 2020 integrated partnership and communications campaign is, “Everyone Counts in Montgomery.”

The Census Bureau's primary mission is conducting the U.S. Census every 10 years, which allocates the seats of the U.S. House of Representatives to the states based on their population. The bureau's various censuses and surveys help allocate federal funds each year; and it helps states and local jurisdictions make informed decisions such as where to build and maintain schools, hospitals, transportation infrastructure, and public safety departments.
