The City of Graham Counts
The City of Graham encourages all residents to participate in the United States 2020 Census. Together we are all working as one community to achieve a full count in the 2020 Census.
Why is the 2020 Census important?
Every 10 years, the U.S. Constitution requires a count of the nation’s population to determine the number of congressional representatives for each state. The government also uses census data to distribute an estimated $600 billion dollars in federal funding annually.
The City is committed to ensuring a full count of all Graham residents. The County has dedicated resources and expertise to develop a comprehensive, collaborative and ongoing effort to identify hard-to-count populations and identify the most effective ways to encourage participation in the census. We will continue to work together – local government, community agencies, and our residents – to make sure everyone is counted in 2020.
