Every 10 years, the government reports the number of people who live in the U.S. by conducting a count called the Census. This year, the census will begin on April 1. The Census determines how many seats each state receives in the U.S. House of Representatives and state, local and federal governments use Census information for planning and allocating billions in federal funds. Hosted by The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute and presented by Mario Lee, Partnership Specialist for the New York Regional Census Center, this webinar will provide an overview of the census, how to complete it, what data is collected and how that data is used and stored.
