UAB Is Counting
on You

Make Your Voice Heard
in the 2020 Census.

Why is the Census important to UAB?


UAB could receive less money to help support education, research, health care, and more if we underrepresent ourselves in the Census. Here are a few examples of programs and initiatives that could be diminished if you don’t stand up to be counted.

  • Federal Pell Grants for students
  • Adult education grants
  • Public health, science, and engineering education
  • Student wellness programs
  • Federal health programs helping children and the elderly
  • Community mental health services

How to be counted


Participating in the 2020 Census is easy and convenient. It takes only 5-10 minutes to complete the Census. Go to 2020Census.gov to complete your 2020 Census survey today. Take a look at this sample questionnaire to see just how simple it will be.

You are Alabama. And we need you.


If you don’t raise your hand to be counted, it could jeopardize support for our communities, education, health care, road improvements, and much more. Whether or not you’re technically an Alabama resident, if your head hits a pillow in our state at night, you’re one of us — and your presence here matters. Why? Because the United States is taking a head count of folks in Alabama as part of the 2020 Census. Those numbers will be used by the federal government to divvy up funds across the country and determine how much of a voice you have in Washington, D.C.
