What is the Census?

Have you ever heard of the Census and wondered, what is the Census? Well, I’m here to tell you!

The Census is a group of people in the government that count all the people who live in the USA every 10 years. The Census is very important because if we didn’t have it schools and companies would not be able to operate properly. See, if the Census does not count all the people in the USA correctly then they can’t fund the schools and other buildings with the money they need. I know, kind of confusing! Anyway, those are the reasons why the Census is here and what they do.
