The 2020 Census is fast approaching and we want to make sure that you’re counted! Census data informs the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds to states and communities each year for critical programs such as:
|• Housing||• Human Resources|
|• Libraries||• Community Resources|
• Health Care
|• Public Transportation||• Emergency Services|
Arapahoe County relies heavily on these federal dollars to fund and supplement critical programs like Human Services, economic development, housing assistance, transportation improvements and more. Census counts also help determine the number of congressional seats and Colorado is poised to pick up one seat as a result of the 2020 Census.
Arapahoe County is Colorado’s first county and the state’s third largest with a population of 651,215. The County has grown by more than 75,000 people since the 2010 Census. Learn more about the characteristics of our county.
The census helps shape our future, so it’s imperative that we get an accurate count in 2020!
