The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States. As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, America gets just one chance every ten (10) years, to count its population. The data collected by the decennial census determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities.
Achieving an accurate census count is imperative for our democracy. To ensure the 2020 Census accurately counts Pipestone resident's, the City has established a community-led Complete Count Committee to guide the engagement campaign.
