|Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States. The census counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.
Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by sex, age, race and other factors. Glenview benefits the most when the census counts everyone.
After the 2010 Census, Glenview's population was set at 44,692. Following substantial redevelopment in the past decade of the former Naval Air Station Glenview into The Glen, Glenview commissioned a partial Special Census in five areas in 2017 that raised Glenview's official count to 46,740.
Getting a complete and accurate count in 2020 requires everyone's help. Individuals, businesses, community organizations, schools and others have a role to play.
