It’s Census Time!
Every ten years the United States conducts a nationwide population count called the Census. All Federal funding is awarded based on Census results. With an accurate count, Pasco County could be awarded maximum funding. Over the last twenty years, Pasco County has experienced exponential growth in population and development, which means it is critical that we do not under count our new population. All Federal funding goes towards public services, such as our schools, hospitals, and roads. Help Pasco County better serve you!
"Your response to the Census gives you a greater voice - the Census determines Congressional reapportionment, supports growth management, and determines how our community functions for you. Our goal is to reach 100 percent participation."
- Commissioner Moore
We are relying on YOU to help Pasco County count in the 2020 Census. This year the Census will be conducted differently; every household will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census via mail. You may respond to the Census online, by phone, by mail, or receive a personal visit from a Census representative. Please be sure to respond.
Let’s Make Pasco Count!
Getting a Complete Count
Reaching for 100%
Getting an accurate count of an area is critical to receive the appropriate amount of funding and to plan for the future. There are areas that are considered "hard to count" due to low response rates- this mean less for everyone! To combat this, a Complete Count Committee has been put together to go into the hard to reach areas and get a complete count of Pasco County. Learn more here:
Each commissioner has appointed 2 members in their district to engage with the community at large, especially the hard to reach areas. The Complete Count Committee will lead a subcommittee of volunteers that actively promote and engage the community to spread Census awareness.
