Yuma County Census 2020
The United States Constitution requires a Census of the population of our nation every ten years with Census information used to determine how many representatives the State of Arizona has in the United States House of Representatives and to determine the legislative districts in our State legislature as well as our local government bodies. Therefore, having an accurate and complete Census count is important to the five jurisdictions of Yuma County.
The Census numbers are used to determine Federal and State funds and grants, economic development, housing assistance, transportation improvements and many other programs. The community leaders of the region are also concerned about historically undercounted populations including young children, young adults, elderly, immigrants, migrants, non-English speakers, and homeless; and recognizes that language, culture, trust and other social barriers have historically impeded some people from participating in the census.
