Illinois spending $2.39 per resident on decennial census outreach effort
Per capita spending amount second only to California

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — With less than a month and a half remaining until the new year begins, most states have put together what’s known as a “complete count committee” that organizes efforts statewide to get people to participate in the 2020 Census.

However, a handful of states — Florida, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Texas — are lacking these state-sponsored committees.

More than half of the states have backed up their 2020 Census outreach efforts with money. Here’s a list of the 26 states that have allocated almost $350 million for outreach for the decennial census, the amount they’re appropriating and how much that breaks down per resident.

The decennial census will help determine the allocation of $1.5 trillion of federal dollars and how many congressional seats each state gets:

Alabama, $1.2 million, $0.25

Alaska, $600,000, $0.81

California, $187 million, $4.73

Colorado, $6 million, $1.05

Connecticut, $500,000, $0.14

Georgia, $3.7 million, $0.36
