The US Census Bureau will pose a big question to everyone in the United States on April 1. It will simply be about who lives in the country. According to the 2020 United States census odds, the result will likely be that the population is currently over 334.5 million.
The census that happens once every ten years marks the 24th national count of everyone living in the United States. Every household in America will receive a questionnaire either in the mail, online or in-person on April 1. This day also happens to be the National Census Day in the US. Although as online sportsbook news in the United States reported the census will be very challenging due to coronavirus pandemic, the officials are determined to complete it.
The census will include nine basic demographic questions. They are about who lives in the household, how they are related, their age, sex, and race. In addition, whether they own or rent their house and their phone number. Accordingly, here is the expected result to come out as per 2020 United States census odds.
The population in the US is likely over 334.5m
The last time the census took place was in 2010. Ten years ago the population of the United States was 308,745,538. That marked a significant increase of 9.7% from the 2000 census. There are no official numbers yet about the current population, but the estimation is that every year there are around 2 million new people living in the country. Accordingly, the latest numbers by Worldmeter show that more than 330 million people might currently live in the US.

The census determines the size of the electoral districts
The census is highly important in the US for political and economic reasons. It helps the federal government decide how many seats in Congress each state should have. So, if a state loses population, it might lose a seat in the US House of Representatives. If the population is growing, a state might gain a seat.
Economically the census helps the federal government decide how to share more than $675 billion in federal money each year. Those funds ensure states and communities build roads, schools, hospitals, and fire departments. Besides, more than 300 federal programs also rely on the census and they are mostly distributed to the weaker segments of the society.
