At the start of every decade, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a count of the people living within the borders of the United States. The results are used to determine everything from the number of elected representatives to a community’s grant application for broadband access. To help with this endeavor, Nebraska Extension is partnering with the Census Bureau to promote census data collection.
