Our goal is to make sure all of Chatham is COUNTED! 

 

Why does the Census matter?

Political Representation

The Census is an essential part of our democracy! Our numbers determine the number of seats North Carolina has in the US House of Representatives. It is also used for redistricting at the national, state and local level.

   

 Funding

Census data brings federal tax dollars back to Chatham County. Chatham County receives around $132,961,408 in federal funds annually that impact programs like Medicare, Chip and Head start.

   

 

 Community Planning & Economic Development

Census data helps plan roads, schools, hospitals, senior centers, and emergency services in our communities. It also assists businesses in locating corporate headquarters, and factories and stores.

 

Here's what you need to know: 

 

IT'S SAFE

By law, your responses cannot be used against you.

IT'S EASY

There are only 10 questions that take about 10 minutes to answer.

 

IT'S IMPORTANT

A good count means more money for local schools and other services.
