Mandated by the Constitution, every ten years America comes together to count every resident in the United States. The Census tallies the nation’s population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support vital programs for states, counties and communities — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.

“It is very important that everyone in Palmdale is counted in the Census,” said Palmdale’s Management Analyst II Nardy Lopez. “There are millions of dollars at stake----dollars that will have a very positive effect on the quality of life of all our residents.”

For more information, please call Nardy Lopez at 661/267-5177 or email nlopez@cityofpalmdale.org.
