The 2020 Census Is Happening Now

Responses to the 2020 Census will inform funding for clinics, Medicare, the Children's Health Insurance Program, and other health care assistance programs.

 

Responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, protected by federal law, and answers can only be used to produce statistics.  For more information, visit 2020Census.gov.

Responses to the 2020 Census will inform funding for clinics, Medicare, the Children's Health Insurance Program,  and other health care assistance programs. In 2016 $4.1 billion of federal funding was allocated to Maine based on census data.  Each person not counted is a loss of $15,000-$20,000 of federal funds lost to Maine over the course of 10 years.
