The U.S. Constitution requires that each decade a count, or census, is taken of America's population. The U.S. Census Bureau leads this effort. The census provides vital information for you and the community.
• It determines how many representatives each state gets in Congress and is used to redraw district boundaries for Federal, State, and local offices.
• Communities rely on census statistics to plan for a variety of resident needs including transportation, schools and emergency services.
• Businesses use census data to determine where to bring jobs and where to locate places to shop.
The City of Andover is committed to providing support and outreach to ensure an accurate count. If you would like to receive updates on Census Operations in our community, Click here to Commit to Be Counted.
