Center for Governmental Studies U.S. Census Support
Collecting and analyzing accurate census data is one of the most important ways for communities in Illinois to understand who we are and what we need. Census data helps state and local governments decide how to allocate funds, and it helps communities determine where to build everything from schools to supermarkets.
