A fair and accurate decennial census is crucial for people with disabilities—and, indeed, for every person in the United States. Your responses to the 2020 Census will help determine how many seats in Congress each U.S. state will receive, influence where the boundaries of legislative, school, and voting districts are drawn, and guide the allocation of $1.5 trillion federal funds.
