Rhode Island is at Risk
An accurate Census is Vital to Rhode Island. The state is at risk of losing one of only two congressional seats, and federal dollars coming to Rhode Island depend on an accurate count.
Census Records are Sealed
It is important that all residents of Rhode Island be counted regardless of legal status. Census information is not available to other government agencies.
