People who live in Missouri could miss out on a lot if everyone is not counted in the Census. Missouri 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, Missouri received more than $16 billion from federal spending programs guided by data derived from the 2010 Census. Missouri can’t afford to miss out!
