Hey Seattle, it’s Census Day. Here’s what that means

Wednesday is Census Day. That means when you fill out the 2020 census, you need to put your information and the number of people in your household as of April 1. Data from the census — conducted every 10 years — helps inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding is allotted to states and determines how many seats each state has in Congress. The results will help inform critical decisions in Seattle and across the region.
