Thomasville Counts

The US Census is a federal initiative that every 10 years counts how many people live in the country. This decennial census is required by the US Constitution to be conducted by the US Census Bureau. 

And it's important to all Thomasville residents because this census count affects how much federal funding our city gets for various programs for the next 10 years.

Our state could lose about $16,000 in federal funding over a 10-year period for each NC resident who isn't counted in the 2020 Census. Read more here.

That's why the City wants to help you know more about the census and is partnering with Davidson County, the State, and the Census Bureau to bring you this information.
