orado, everyone counts.
Together we count works to ensure a fair and accurate 2020 census
The census occurs every 10 years and is required by the Constitution. It is more than just a nationwide head count—the 2020 census will be the foundation for all data in the U.S. for the next 10 years. Policy leaders, businesses, schools, health care, and philanthropy all use census data to make important decisions for our communities. Programs such as Medicaid, CHIP, SNAP and highway planning and repairs get their funding from census data. In addition to adequate funding, the census also determines political representation in the House of Representatives.
The mission of Together We Count is to ensure that hard-to-count communities across Colorado are fairly and accurately counted in the 2020 census. Together We Count helps to raise awareness for the census through tools, messages, and materials that educate organizations and individuals about the 2020 census.
