Get the community engaged. Complete the questions online, by phone or by mail before the census takers are sent out.
NAR is encouraging members to take part in the census and to encourage their friends, neighbors, and clients to do so as well.
You might not know it, but the census data provides tremendous value to the real estate industry. NAR uses the data for research and trends in communities across this country. The usefulness of that information relies on current, accurate data from the federal government.
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.
