Pelham 2020 Census

Pelham 2020 Census

The City of Pelham Counts wants YOU to be counted in the 2020 Census. Responding to the census helps Pelham get its fair share of federal funds.

The census provides vital information for you and your community.

The next census of the United States will be taken in 2020. A full and accurate count is critical for Alabama’s communities because many of the federal programs distribute money to the state based on statistics. An under count or drop in census numbers for Alabama will mean less funding allocated to the state and - as an extension – to your community.

The census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution. The purpose is to conduct a census of population and housing and disseminate results to the President, the states, and the American people. The primary uses for decennial census data are:

  • Reapportionment
  • Government Resource Allocation
  • Redistricting
  • Demographic Data for a variety of resident needs including new roads, schools, and emergency services. Businesses use census data to determine where to open places to shop.

So, make sure YOU are counted in Census 2020.
