We are advocates for public knowledge

Minnesotans for the American Community Survey and 2020 Census (MACS 2020) is a coalition of Minnesota leaders, policy and decision makers, business and development planners, forecasters, housing and social service providers, educators, and engaged citizens. Our mission is to education Minnesota's members of Congress about the critical importance of Census data to driver a strong economy and improve the well-being of all Minnesotans.

Census data play an essential and irreplaceable role in America

We've conducted a count of our population every 10 years since 1790, and surveys have provided additional information about who we are, where we live, and what we do.
