The census, conducted every 10 years, is an official count of the nation's population mandated by the Constitution. 

The results are used to determine distribution of taxpayer money and the apportionment of the 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Every U.S. household, including those occupied by non-citizens and illegal immigrants, must be counted.

This poster in Khmer is among 28 languages in the Census bureau's campaign.
