The importance of a complete and accurate US Census cannot be overstated. Separate from the Annual City Census, the US Census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution, and the count impacts our most fundamental rights and ability to adequately plan for our collective future.

The Census determines how we will be represented in the US Congress and in the Massachusetts Legislature. It directly affects the allocation of over $880 billion per year in federal assistance for neighborhood improvements, public health, education, social services, transportation, and much more. For Cambridge, it is estimated that over $2,000 in federal funding per resident, per year is allocated based on Census data.
