Information collected by the Census Bureau is utilized to distribute more than $675 billion in federal funds and grants to states, counties, and communities. It also helps determine how many representatives each state gets in Congress and is used to redraw district boundaries. Communities also rely on census statistics to plan for a variety of needs including new roads, schools, and emergency services. Some businesses even utilize the data to expand or relocate their offices or headquarters to specific communities.
