Political Representation: Census population data is used to redraw Congressional, State, Legislative, and Local Districts. Those elected officials rely on this census data to understand the make-up of the population in their district.

Planning: Public and private sector decision-making based on accurate population counts (where to open, close, or expand businesses, schools, hospitals, and more!)
