The Social Action Committee of the Lexington (KY) Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., is working with the US Census Bureau to provide education and resources to the community about the upcoming Census.
Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by sex, age, race and other factors. Your community benefits the most when the census counts everyone. People in your community use census data in all kinds of ways, such as:
Individuals supporting community initiatives involving legislation, quality-of-life and consumer advocacy.
Businesses using data to decide where to build factories, offices and stores, and these create jobs.
Local government officials using the census to ensure public safety and plan new schools and hospitals.
Real estate developers and city planners using the census to plan new homes and improve neighborhoods.
The United States Census Bureau is a principal agency of the U.S. Federal Statistical System, responsible for producing data about the American people and economy.
