2020 Census: Why your participation is vital to Xenia's future

Every 10 years the United States government counts the number of people living in the country. The Census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution, and in 2020 another will take place.

Area census offices have already started to open across the country, and census takers will begin visiting areas that have experienced a lot of growth. On April 1, 2020, Census Day will be observed nationwide. By this date, every home will have received an invitation to participate, and for the first time, residents will be able to respond online or by phone. A traditional mail response will also be accepted.

2020 Census

Xenia Mayor Sarah Mays issued a proclamation earlier in 2019 announcing the City of Xenia would be working with the Greene County Complete Count Committee (CCC) to provide residents with necessary information to ensure participation. The CCC will be contacting residents about the 2020 Census, and we encourage you to participate in the survey process. Participation in the Census is vital to communities and states, as it determines representation and funding for projects such as new roads, schools and emergency services. Every year the federal government distributes more than $600 billion to states and communities based on data collected from the Census.
