Preparations for 2020 Census are already underway

Community leaders have begun preparations for the United States Census Bureau’s nationwide headcount.

Representatives from the City of Perryton, Ochiltree County, and many community agencies and businesses met Wednesday afternoon with Clavio Garansuay, a partnership specialist with the U.S. Census Bureau, to discuss the possibility of forming committees to help increase participation in the census.

The census is held every 10 years and seeks to get a complete and accurate count of the total population of the nation.

Communities use the count to help plan for community needs, and federal agencies use the results to distribute federal funds every year.
