TRUSSVILLE COUNTS 2020 CENSUS



The 2020 Census is very important to the future of the City of Trussville and the State of Alabama.



Did you know?

  • The Census directly impacts funding for Trussville for the next decade.

  • Gasoline tax funds, including the new 10-cent gasoline tax are based upon our Census count for the following ten years.

  • Internet sales tax is distributed on a population basis from the Census count.

  • Capital Improvement funds and other funds from the State are allocated by Census population.

  • Businesses use census data to determine where to build offices, stores, and industrial facilities that create jobs and tax dollars in our community.

  • Census statistics are the basis for many federal dollars and grant funding, including programs such as Medicaid, WIC, National School Lunch programs, and Head Start.

  • Each person counted generates almost $1,600 in federal funding for our State and communities.

  • Alabama may lose up to two seats in Congress with less than an 80% response statewide. We may lose one seat with less than 90% response. This dilutes our voice in Washington, D.C. How can you respond to the 2020 Census?

  • Online

  • Telephone

  • Mail

    Watch for an invitation letter mid-March 2020 that has your unique ID to respond

    Your data is confidential and is not shared with IRS, law enforcement, courts, or immigration. Your answers are for statistical purposes only.

    It is your civic duty to say, “I count” by completing your Census questionnaire.

    Contact City Hall with any questions or concerns or visit www.census.Alabama.gov.

    YOUR VOICE MATTERS! TOGETHER WE CAN BE A FORCE FOR CHANGE!
