The census effect in action
When residents participate in the Census, they make a statement about what resources Kansas City needs going forward. Not only does the census count determine the numbers of representatives each state has in Congress, it also determines how more than $4 trillion will be allocated to local and state governments over the next 10 years. The census helps shape decisions about public health, neighborhood improvements, transportation, education, emergency services, senior services and more. In addition, residents themselves have used census data to support community initiatives involving environmental legislation, quality-of-life issues and consumer advocacy.
