Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land City Manager recently appointed a Complete Count Committee to ensure an accurate and complete count of Sugar Land residents for the 2020 Census.
The Census count provides the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support state, county and local community programs impacting education, transportation, employment, health care, public policy and more.

An accurate list ensures that residents will be invited to participate in the Census and that the Census counts residents in the correct locations.
Census workers can be identified by their official identification badges with their name and photo. They will also be carrying an official bag that displays the U.S. Census Bureau seal.
