Data collected for the 2020 Census is critical for states, counties, and communities. The numbers in the Census help determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, guides the allocation of federal funding, helps communities plan for future infrastructure, and much more. Some estimates show a 1% undercount in the 2010 Census. A similar undercount (which is even more pronounced in minority populations) could result in a loss of $4 million in Wyandotte County alone.
