What you need to know about the Census
Every decade, people all across the country and in Hattiesburg fill out the Census in order to have an accurate count of all people in the United States. The Census determines many funding opportunities for our District including federal funding for important community services that help support Tiger families and a fair share of representation in our area.
 
The next Census is in Spring 2020. Let's ensure that all Hattiesburg residents are counted so we can put resources to good use here at home. 
 
Census Key Dates 
Beginning in mid-March 2020 each household will get a letter in the mail. The letter will explain all the ways to fill out the Census. If you do not receive a letter, you can still go online and call to fill it out. Be sure to include any person living in your household, family or not. 
 
Why Hattiesburg Should take the Census
