About Count Me INdy:
“Count Me INdy is Indianapolis and Marion County’s Complete Count Campaign, dedicated to promoting the census to all residents and ensuring that they know that – whoever they are and wherever they’re from – they count in the 2020 Census.”
Census Participation Is Completely Confidential
“By federal law, individual responses to the census are confidential for 72 years and cannot be shared with anyone, including law enforcement, immigration, tax agencies, or even the President of the United States.”
Census participation helps your community!
From school boards to the U.S. House of Representatives, the census is used to distribute power to the people.
Over $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to communities across the nation based on the census, supporting everything from education and healthcare to transportation and housing.
Businesses, big and small, use census data to determine where to open up stores and make investments.
Quality of Life Programs
Non-profit and other community organizations use census data to develop, implement, and evaluate their programs.”
