The U.S. Census conducts the decennial census every ten years to provide an official count of the entire U.S. population to Congress for apportionment of taxes and representation in the House of Representatives. The Census counted residents in the United States on April 1, 2020, and asked a short set of additional questions, such as age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, and owner/renter status. The first limited data release for the 2020 Census (the Redistricting Data Summary File) was August 12, 2021. Full 2020 Census data are not scheduled to be released until 2023.
