JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri officials plan to promote the U.S. Census during an all-day rally at the state Capitol.

Missouri officials are encouraging people to participate in this year's census in part because the state risks losing one of its seats in Congress. The census is taken once per decade and is used to set legislative districts and distribute federal money.

State lawmakers, a county official and Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer are to speak Monday at the Missouri census event. Besides speakers, the event also features an interactive explanation of census data. The rally also is to feature several hours of live performances.
