2020 Census in Pennsylvania

2020 Census in Pennsylvania - Pennsylvania Counts

Pennsylvania Counts is the official Pennsylvania site that includes interesting data, timelines, maps, a preview of the Census questions, and some intriguing data visualization tools!

To help with the census, and to get everyone counted, Governor Wolf has created a statewide 2020 Census Complete Commission.

A few facts:

- Did you know that children under 5 are often underreported?

- PA receives roughly $2,093 per person each year from federal funding determined by the census count.  That would be $20,930 lost over 10 years if even 1 person is missed in the count!

- College students should be counted where they are sleeping on April 1 (not where their residency is per declarations to the IRS).

- PA public library funding can also be impacted if there is an undercount of our residents!
