FEB. 16, 2021 — The U.S. Census Bureau released the total number of 2020 Census paid temporary workers that earned any pay Jan. 31 – Feb. 6, 2021.

The U.S. Constitution mandates that a census of the population be conducted once every 10 years. Census data helps determine the number of seats each state holds in Congress and how billions of dollars in funding are distributed to states and local communities every year for services and infrastructure, including health care, jobs, schools, roads and bridges.
