Once each decade, the United States Census Bureau sets out to count every person in the United States once, only once, and in the right place.

This website complements the work of the U. S. Census Bureau to promote a complete count of our local community – Muncie and Delaware County. Use this website to learn more about the benefits of a complete count; get answers to your questions about the legally-protected privacy of your answers; and find out how you can share this information across our community.

The Census is a crucial facet of our democracy. It determines our federal representation and designates the distribution of federal funds. A complete and accurate count benefits Delaware County and the rest of the country as well.

Why the Count Matters

A complete and accurate count can provide a decade of federal funding and representation. Visit our benefits page for figures and details.
