Many Native People Weren’t Counted in the Last Census

The US Census occurs once every ten years. Since the first census in 1790 (229 years ago!) there have been 22 official censuses. This year, in January of 2020, the latest census will officially launch.

There are a few purposes to the census:

  • To apportion seats in Congress
  • To define legislative and school districts
  • To make decisions about community infrastructure and services (schools, roads, job training, services for the elderly, disabled, veterans, and more)
  • To distribute over $675 billion in federal fund toward public health, education, transportation, neighborhood improvements and more

To get accurate census data, it’s important to count everyone. Unfortunately, experts believe that Native Americans and Alaska Natives have been undercounted in nearly every census, both on-reservation and off.

You Will Shape Our Future has partnered with the 2020 Census to help raise awareness of the importance for Indian Country.
