Every 10 years, the United States Census Bureau sets out to count every single individual in the country. It is incredibly important that every person is counted as this number guides policy, decision making, and funding. It is estimated that $675 Billion is at stake which is why it's so important that everyone in our community is counted! Every household will received a letter in March with a unique census code. This code is tied to your address, so if you lost the letter the code may still be retrieved.
Lathrup Village finished with a 90.1% response rate, but we can do better! Check out how our response rate compares to our neighbors:
