Join Minnesota Compass to learn how census data are used by Minnesota residents, nonprofits, businesses, and government, and why it's essential that everyone is counted in the 2020 census.

Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. Census data are used to:

  • Guide the distribution of billions of dollars to Minnesota's communities
  • Determine the number of seats Minnesota has in the U.S. House of Representatives
  • Draw congressional and state legislative districts 
  • Provide data that shapes how Minnesota's policymakers and business leaders decide to invest public and private resources

5:30-6:00 p.m. - Registration and networking
6:00-7:30 p.m. - Program

There may be trivia. There may be swag. There will definitely be data. 

Questions? Contact Wendy Huckaby at or 651-280-2720.
