That’s just for government functions, many private companies make their decisions based on the 2020 census information as well. From demographics research to deciding what new products could be useful or popular. The reach of this information is often underestimated.

Potential Drawbacks of Census Participation and How You're Protected 


However, this does bring some questions. Some are worried that this can be used against them. From being targeted by landlords for having too many tenets, to being hassled by police. However, these worries aren’t new. 

The many potential problems around the census have long been found out, and it has many safeguards to prevent abuses. 
  • The government is restricted from using this information for any reason other than statistics. 
  • The police aren’t even allowed to use if for law enforcement, for example. 
  • The individual information collected must remain in the Census Bureau, there is no exception to this.


The Bureau has several ways to collect this information. They send agents out door to door, but also offer phone interviews and even a new online site. 


There are no real downsides to taking the 2020 census. 

From funding to representation, it will help your community to be properly accounted for. It’s also easier than ever for residents to take, with the new online submissions. 

Make sure to do your part.
