It is no surprise that liquor licenses are issued by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control of California (ABC) and there is only a certain number of liquor licenses issued to each county. To go even deeper, the counties are divided into what is called a census tract. This allows the ABC to evenly distribute the licenses throughout the County depending on population. The census data collected from completing census 2020 can possibly help determine how many more licenses ABC should issue in a census tract.
Completing census 2020 will also help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding each state and community gets. The greatest role it plays is to determine how many seats in Congress each state receives.
All in all, census tract in California benefits each community from the smallest neighborhoods to the biggest metropolitan cities. It can allow for higher funding to support local businesses and possibly more liquor licenses to meet the community’s needs—a high population results in more benefits, funding, and liquor licenses.
Californians can complete the 2020 Census online, by phone, or by mail as paper forms are being mailed to households that have not yet responded. A Census ID is not required for households to respond. Be counted and help secure critical resources for your community today! For more information please visit census.ca.gov
