Why Census 2020 Matters to You
Every man, woman and child has an impact on the future of the Maricopa region by participating in the 2020 Census.
The iCount2020 Campaign is a regional outreach effort by the Maricopa Association of Governments aimed at demonstrating the importance of every single person being counted.
The census serves as the basis for determining congressional representation and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support vital programs in states and communities across the country—impacting health care, housing, education, transportation, employment, and public policy.

The site is easy to navigate and is available in English and Spanish. You can also sign up to receive text and/or email messages (in English and Spanish) about important deadlines and ways to get involved.
