People who live in West Virginia could miss out on a lot if everyone is not counted in the Census. West Virginia 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, West Virginia received more than $6 billion from federal spending programs guided by data derived from the 2010 Census. West Virginia can’t afford to miss out!
