State Facts for Students
What does the census do with all the information it collects? It keeps your information private, but it counts the information in categories so we can find statistics about our state and the country as a whole. For example, they add up how many children there are in each state by age and gender. They also count businesses including toy stores, amusement parks, and ice cream shops. The census had created a page just for kids to tell about things that might be interesting to them. Check it out at State Facts for Students!
