Helping ensure rural Minnesota participation is robust and complete
We believe communities are at their vibrant best when they work for all. Yet people in rural areas are often overlooked in the census — which means rural gets under-represented in how federal and state funds are distributed, how many seats in Congress we have, and where businesses locate.
Over time, important groups in rural areas have not fully shown up in census counts:
- Rural communities in general
- Young children, especially infants
- Native Americans
Rural leaders — get ready now, so all people in your community are counted in April 2020.
