March Evening Event: The Census Process
Thursday, March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Please join the League of Women Voters Edina to learn more about the 2020 U.S. Census and why it matters.
The 2020 census is critical for states, counties, and communities:
- For representation – Minnesota is at risk of losing a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
- For funding – Federal funds are distributed to states based on data derived from the Census.
- For planning – Minnesota’s demographics are shifting; how will this impact community needs?
- For business – Chambers of Commerce and other organizations in Minnesota use census data.
The Minnesota State Demographic Center will present and answer questions from the audience.
The Center is the main provider of demographic data and analysis for the State of Minnesota, and serves as an official liaison to the U.S. Census Bureau.
All are welcome! We encourage you to register for a free ticket, but please feel free to attend without one.
