As you know during this time, the U.S. Census Bureau is conducting the 2020 Census. The Census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution and counts every living person in the United States and the five U.S. territories every ten years. The data from the 2020 Census will be used in a variety of ways that will impact our lives and those that we care about for the next decade. For example, the census data will be used to direct billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services. The data will also be used to draw congressional district lines and determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Please join in our efforts and stay tuned for additional ways the NBA will be working to ensure our members and communities are counted during the 2020 Census!
