An accurate count is critical so Berrien County receives our fair share of federal funds. The Census count determines how much funding Berrien County will receive over the next 10 years for roads, school lunches, education, housing, transportation, Medicare, Medicaid, and much more. The county’s population also determines how many lawmakers we get in Lansing and Washington D.C.
The Census form has 9 questions: name, gender, age, birthday, race, ethnicity, phone number, relationship to head-of-household, and owner or renter.
