The City uses Census data

Post Date:03/09/2020 8:51 AM

It’s not just about knowing how many people live in the USA. The Census is about knowing how many people live in Texas and Pflugerville which affects the allocation of federal funding to our state and communities.

Between 2000 and 2010, Texas added more than 4 million residents and gained 3 congressional seats. The distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities is based on census data. Get counted.

The City uses the census when looking at city growth and planning for water contracts and supply, roadway expansions, and emergency response services.  Valid growth trends help the City to anticipate future needs and evaluate services. The more information the City has about its residents, the better we can tailor events and programs to meet the needs of the various ages, sexes and ethnicities represented here in Pflugerville.

In the City's comprehensive plan, data is used to track trends in our community. Housing types and neighborhood styles are all impacted by population size and demographics.
