2020 Census

Time is running out to take the 2020 Census.

The Census Bureau will cease counting activities on Sept. 30. Polk County’s response rate currently stands at just 60.8 percent, far below the 2010 rate of 78 percent.

Census data is used to distribute billions of dollars in federal funding, grants and support, including Title 1 grants, the National School Lunch Program, and numerous other programs that help our students and families lead healthier, happier lives.
