The 10-year census is critical, as it helps legislative authorities, policy implementors, and municipal agencies to better and more accurately allocate resources to the population. IT IS CURRENTLY NOT REQUIRED TO ANSWER OR ASK QUESTIONS REGARDING CITIZENSHIP. Accurate records of the population are critical to have, regardless of an individual's personal opinions regarding a residents' citizenship status.
