Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a census to count or survey those living in the United States and the five U.S. territories. The results of the census help determine congressional representation and federal funding.

2020 Census

The next census will be April 1, 2020.

Why is the census important to St. Louis Park?

The census is critical to better understanding and representing our community. The data collected:

  • Determines our representation (number of members) in the U.S. and Minnesota House of Representatives.
  • Guides federal funding to communities for schools, roads, hospitals and emergency services.
  • Assists businesses in deciding where to locate or build their facilities, recruiting employees and conducting market research.

Everyone counts! The City of St. Louis Park is determined to reach everyone and ensure a complete count that accurately represents our community.
