2020 Census: Make Everyone in Ohio Count!

The Ohio Census Advocacy Coalition

A clear and accurate census data is the lifeblood for a strong Ohio. The census count allocates much needed federal dollars for infrastructure such as bridges and roads and for services that reach every neighborhood, such as community development grants, nutrition programs, and health funding. Beyond services, an accurate census will serve as the basis for apportionment of congressional seats.​
