Public information: Census Bureau outlines 2020 Census plans to count American Indians and Alaska Natives


December 11, 2019

In November, leaders from the U.S. Census Bureau briefed media outlets that serve the American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) community on the status of the 2020 Census, describing the efforts underway for all people to be accurately counted and the opportunity for individuals to apply for temporary jobs supporting the operation.

The U.S. Constitution mandates that a census of the population be conducted every 10 years. Census Bureau population statistics inform how billions of dollars in federal funds are allocated for critical public services like healthcare clinics, schools and education, and roads and bridges. The 2020 Census will also determine how many seats each state gets in Congress and guide the drawing of local political boundaries.
