What are the benefits of the census?

Here are some examples of the resources the census brings to the community.

The U.S. Government distributes hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds each year based on census data.

FACT: In fiscal year 2016, North Carolina received nearly $24 billion through 55 federal spending programs guided by data derived from the 2010 Census. On a per-capita basis, this is more than $2,000 per North Carolina resident per year.

Local organizations and businesses use census data to plan for the future of our community.

FACT: The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) relies on census data to make informed decisions regarding transit services. Most recently they used census data to determine the likelihood that people in certain areas would use transit, and used that information to redesign the entire bus network. The result has been improved connections to employment areas and better service to low-income populations. 

Our number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives is based on census data.

FACT: North Carolina currently has 13 seats; we may gain an additional seat if the 2020 Census count is complete. In 2010, North Carolina likely missed gaining a congressional seat by only 15,800 people.
