GENERAL CENSUS INFORMATION
Census Timeline / Census Form
Information collected by the Census is first used to determine congressional representation. The number of representatives a state has in the U.S. House of Representatives is based on population. Each congressional district represents about 650,000 people. It is important to have an accurate count to ensure that local areas have adequate representation at the federal level
States and cities receive federal funding, like the Community Development Block Grant, based on information collected by the Census. Different funds can be obtained for park development, sidewalk and utility repairs, and other municipal services that help us maintain College Station's high quality of life.
