People who live in Minnesota could miss out on a lot if everyone is not counted in the Census. Minnesota could lose out on the political representation it deserves. And people and communities could be denied money that they need for schools, community health care, jobs, and transportation.

In 2016, Minnesota received more than $15 billion from federal spending programs guided by data derived from the 2010 Census. Minnesota can’t afford to miss out!
