The Importance of The Mississippi Census 2020

When it comes to the 2020 Mississippi Census, you probably have plenty of questions. “What is the Census?” “How long does it take to fill out?” “When does it arrive?” and for many of you, “What’s is the importance of it?”

We’re glad you asked! We know the Census can seem a bit confusing or daunting, so we’re here to clear it up for you.

Picture this: if you were a part of a group that all had to come together to decide on an issue, wouldn’t you want your voice to be heard? If everybody else was able to be counted in and have their voices heard, wouldn’t you want the same? When we’re left out, things seem more unfair.

Unfortunately, that’s what it’s like when you don’t fill out the 10-question Census survey: you’re not able to tell your state, “Hey! I’m here, and I count!” So, what’s the solution? The 2020 MS Census: a simple 10-question, 10-minute-long survey that asks you a few basic prompts such as how many residents are currently living in your home. That’s it! That’s all it takes for your voice to be heard and for Mississippi to potentially receive more government assistance for programs such as health, education, and more! The importance is lasting.

So, if you want your voice to be heard, what’re you waiting for? It only takes 10 minutes to fill out our 10-question survey to make 10 years of impact: take the MS 2020 Census today at www.MSCensus2020.org!
