You count, so make sure you’re counted
Census Day is coming up on April 1, and your community -- and all of Oklahoma -- will lose out if you’re not counted.
The census determines how much federal money Oklahoma and its communities will receive for services like health care, parks, roads, education and more. Oklahoma communities stand to gain an estimated $1,675 per person per year for the next 10 years.
Your community and your state need you, so take the time to fill out your census form when it arrives. It takes less than 15 minutes to fill out and is legally private. The Census Bureau is forbidden by law from sharing your answers with anyone. And for the first time, you’ll be able to fill it out online if you choose.
