The United States Government will be counting the residents of Dane County, Wisconsin in the year
2010 during the decennial Census. The Census attempts to count every person, citizens and non-citizens,
who resides in the United States. It is important that the government obtains an accurate count in our
County, as the number of residents determine the amount of federal funds that a community receives.
These federal funds are used to provide essential services to our citizens like:
- building and maintaining roads and structures
- providing emergency services and security
- protecting the environment
- helping people find jobs, food, and shelter
County Executive Kathleen Falk has said that "Participation by everyone in the U.S. Census is vital to
ensure Dane County citizens receive their fair share of financial support from the federal government.
These dollars support our continuing efforts to help our kids and seniors, protect public safety, improve
our roads, and much more. Every person not counted equals $800 less for all the important work we’re
doing to keep Dane County the best place to work, play, and raise a family!"
