What is the Census?
Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a population count, or census, of every person living in the United States and in the U.S. territories, as required by the U.S. Constitution. Not only does the census count people, it also collects information on where they live to provide accurate population numbers for counties, states, and municipalities like Fort Lauderdale. The 2020 U.S. Census is officially underway. The video below provides a basic overview of what the 2020 Census is about.
