Census 2020 is canvassing neighborhoods now

Census workers have begun canvassing neighborhoods to count the number of dwellings before census questionnaires are mailed out. 

In 2020, the US census will determine how many congressional representatives Minnesota will have for the next decade, and will impact funding for schools and local communities. Getting an accurate and complete count of all residents is vital.
