Get ready to be counted — Census Day is April 1. Households will begin receiving invitations to participate in the census in March. Census data is used to determine what will be spent each year on infrastructure and essential services such as schools, hospitals and emergency services. It is vital that every person living in the San Antonio area be counted alongside the rest of the nation.
Population statistics are often used as a basis for many factors — from the number of seats occupied in the U.S. House of Representatives to critical research and the allocation of billions of dollars in federal, state and county funds that directly affect our lives. For the first time in history, you can respond to the census online. Of course, you can still respond by mail or phone. Fill out the form and give your community a voice. It’s in your hands.
