2020 Census: Realtors® Count

Thursday, May 28th, 2020 at 10:12am.

NAR is a national partner for the 2020 census and want all 1.4 million members to take part in the census and to encourage their friends, neighbors, and clients to do so as well.

The Census survey is available online at 2020census.gov, by phone, or by mail.

You might not know but census data provides tremendous value to our members. NAR uses that data for research and examining trends in communities across this country. The usefulness of that information relies on current, accurate data from the federal government.

“Full participation in the census is in many ways the only way to ensure that data is correct.”

The census also helps determine Congressional representation. And, $1.5 trillion is distributed to states and localities based on census results. These funds are used for roads, schools, hospitals, and additional public services. This year’s results will also influence the allocation of $93.5 billion to federal direct student loans, $19.3 billion to Section 8 housing choice vouchers, and $12 billion to the National School Lunch Program.

Thank you for making sure #RealtorsCount!
