Participate in the 2020 Census.
It HelpsYour Community!

The census is conducted every 10 years by the U.S. government and attempts to count every person living in the USA. It includes 10 questions and only takes 10 minutes to complete. The Constitution requires everyone living in the U.S. to be counted in the census regardless of age, race, sex and employment or citizenship status. This includes children ages 0-4.

By law, answers are kept confidential, are used only for producing statistics, and cannot be used against anyone in any way. The census does not ask for immigration status, citizenship status or social security number. The U.S. Census Bureau is prohibited by law from sharing respondent's personal details with other government agencies. The Census Bureau takes strong precautions to keep online responses secure.

In March 2020, everyone will be mailed an invitation to complete the census form online, by phone, or by mail. It is important to include every person living at the address on the form, even if they are not family members. In April 2020, households that have not responded will receive a reminder postcard and some may also receive a paper census form. During May 2020, census workers will visit households that have not responded to make sure everyone is counted.

Completing the census form is fast, simple and convenient. Responding to the census helps communities get the funding they need and helps businesses make data driven decisions that grow the economy. Census data impact daily lives, informing important decisions about funding for services and infrastructure in the community, including health care, senior centers, jobs, political representation, roads, schools and businesses.

When you complete the census form, you contribute to an accurate count, which helps determine the amount of money states will receive for early childhood education, schools, healthcare, housing, transportation and other vital programs. The population count also determines the number of seats a State has in the House of Representatives.

Remember, Census Day is April 1, 2020, but you can fill out the Census anytime between March 12- July 24 online, by phone, on paper, or in person!
