Once every decade, the U.S. Census strives to count every person living in the United States. The next census takes place this year, in 2020, and here in the state of Michigan, we are committed to making sure every Michigander — everyone who calls our state “home” — is counted. The accuracy of the results will affect seniors, students, families, businesses and communities here in Michigan.
