Are You a Mississippian? Then You Count for the 2020 U.S. Census!

If you are currently living in the state of Mississippi, then you are a Mississippian and you count for the 2020 U.S. Census!

Calling all Mississippians: we’re asking for you to take the time to complete the 2020 U.S. Census!

We are excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the United States Census Bureau to support the 2020 Census! As a partner, we’ll be working to ensure that our state is accurately represented.

Here’s how it works: every 10 years the United States Census Bureau conducts the census, an attempt to catalogue every single person possible living within the United States, and that means everybody: adults, children, parents, grandparents, friends, neighbors — everyone!

It’s the job of every Mississippian to make sure that they take the time to complete the 2020 U.S. Census in order for our state to most accurately reflect its current population. The more people that we’re able to have accurately counted, the more federal funding our state is up to receive for roads, schools, childcare programs, and more!

In fact, every person not counted by the census represents up to $50,000 lost for our state. Did you know? In 2010, Mississippi undercounted by about 265,000 people representing $13.2 billion lost!

We know that every single person in Mississippi counts, which is why we want to make sure that’s reflected in our 2020 Census results! Whether you’re a working mom, a restauranteur, or an aspiring musician, we know that each Mississippian has so much to offer and that you count! So, if you’re a Mississippian who wants to see our state grow and prosper, please take the time to complete the 2020 United States Census!
