Census 2020

You Count

When you complete the 2020 Census, you help show our community’s strength. With representation and federal funding at stake, United Way of King County supports an accurate and inclusive census count.

Why it Matters

Once a decade, the census counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting and distributing federal funds.

  • Each year, more than $675 billion is distributed based on census numbers.
  • These dollars impact everything from housing to education and health care.
  • Census 2020 will drive decisions until 2031.


Representation matters! Help get the word out by volunteering in 2020.
