2020 Census

At the start of every decade, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a count of the people living within the borders of the United States. The results are used to determine everything from the number of elected representatives to a community's grant application for broadband access.

More than 130 federal programs rely on data from the U.S. Census when determining spending at state and local levels. A 1% undercount of Arkansas in 2020 may result in nearly $1 billion in lost funds over a 10-year period, according to Arkansas Counts. 

The Cooperative Extension Service provides the following information as a resource for people interested in the 2020 Census and its impact on Arkansas.
