Banner that reads "Make it Count: Village of Morton Grove 2020 Census"


The Census is a population count of the United States that happens every 10 years. It determines the distribution of money and political power from the federal government to our communities. The next Census begins April 1, 2020.

The Library is proud to be part of the Morton Grove Complete Count Committee. Check this page for updates and resources as the Census approaches.


From the Census Bureau: "The census asks questions that provide a snapshot of the nation. Census results affect your voice in government, how much funding your community receives, and how your community plans for the future." When you fill out the census, you help:

  • Determine how many seats states gets in Congress
  • Guide how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year
  • Create jobs
  • Provide housing
  • Prepare for emergencies
  • Build schools, roads and hospitals
