Many projections and estimates used in planning are based on the census. Similarly, many funding allocations are based on population counts, like the LSTA funds used in Utah. It is critical to have a complete count of all Utahns. Libraries can offer trustworthy information about the census and provide vital services to residents, especially to hard-to-count populations. Join us as we learn about dependable sources of information and how to be more effective census ambassadors to our communities.
