Census 2020


Don’t forget to be counted in the 2020 Census! During March 12-20, households will receive the first official mail from the U.S. Census Bureau, with detailed information on how to respond. The City of Coon Rapids is committed to ensuring an accurate count. The City has been working with a "Complete Count Committee" made up of representatives from various local organizations (libraries, churches, the school district and other community groups) to spread the word and educate citizens about the Census. The City has distributed informational material to citizens through the City newsletter, through specialty door hangars at various multi-family living facilities, through public service announcements and through social media and other digital outreach. If citizens have questions about the census, please refer to the City website and the 2020 Census website. Responding to the Census is easy - respond online, by phone, or by mail. 

The U.S. Constitution requires that each decade a count, or census, is taken of America’s population. The U.S. Census Bureau leads this effort. The census provides vital information for you and the community.

•    It determines how many representatives each state gets in Congress and is used to redraw district boundaries for Federal, State, and local offices.

•    Communities rely on census statistics to plan for a variety of resident needs including transportation, schools and emergency services.

•    Businesses use census data to determine where to bring jobs and where to locate places to shop.

•    Census data determines how federal funding is distributed throughout the country.
