Monday’s release of the 2020 Census marks the culmination of work done by local civic and social organizations in partnership with the United Census Bureau to ensure an accurate count of the United States and Mississippi population. As the state of Mississippi seeks to actively attract businesses to the Magnolia state, accurate demographic information about the potential workforce is important. The release of Monday’s data showing the changing population dynamics of Mississippi will play a critical role in long-term planning as the state and counties invest in services like education, healthcare, and transportation.
