LOCATION
Cyber Center


DESCRIPTION

WHY SHOULD IT MATTER TO ME?
Many residents think census data is only used to determine the number of legislative seats Illinois has in Washington or Springfield. This is only a part of what is determined by census results. Census participation and results also determine the amount of federal money Illinois receives each year to support:

• Infrastructure needs, such as road construction and repair;
• Schools and school districts in your community;
• Hospitals and emergency healthcare centers for the insured and uninsured;
• Social services programs that provide assistance for senior citizens, veterans and low-income families; and
• Large companies’ and local business enterprises’ decisions to potentially build or expand their corporate offices or factories, bringing employment opportunities to communities.

WHAT'S AT STAKE?
The George Washington Institute for Public Policy’s report “Counting for Dollars 2020” estimates that the undercount of Illinoisans in the 2010 Census resulted in a loss of $952 per person of federal funding. In 2015 alone, Illinois lost $122 million for every 1
percent of the population not counted in the 2010 Census.
