Census data shape the future of our community and define Allegan's voice in Congress. It will determine how more than $800 billion in federal government resources will be distributed each year, where schools, roads, and hospitals are built, how many congressional seats are apportioned among the states, and fair political representation in congress, state and local legislative bodies.

What to Expect

By April 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the census. You'll then have three options to respond: online, by phone, or by mail. We'll mark Census Day on April 1, 2020, with events across the country. This is a key date for the 2020 count: When completing the census, you'll note where you are living on April 1.
