2020 Census: 
Shaping Loudoun's Future


Why is the Census Important for Loudoun County?
An accurate count of Loudoun County residents is important to the community in many ways. The count affects the allocation of federal funding to the county and affects how legislative districts are drawn, which can impact the number of seats that the state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Your response ensures we have the resources to build stronger communities!

 Census information will be mailed in March 2020
