Do You Know Your Census History?


Every 10 years, the United States counts its population. It's a requirement, written into the Constitution. And the first count dates back to the first years of our first president, when U.S. Marshals conducted the census on horseback. It's carried on once a decade since then, as the country has continued to grow, as innovators have found new ways to ensure that everyone is counted.

This year, make sure you make history by participating in the 2020 count. Then test your history with this census quiz.
