Take the 2020 Census
What is the Census?
Every 10 years, the Census counts every person living in the United States. The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency.
How is my Census response used?
The answers you provide are used to produce statistics about states, counties, cities, and small areas called “Census tracts”. You are kept anonymous.
How does the Census help our community?
More people counted in our community means more money can be allotted for programs and projects in our community. Census data affects more than $675 billion of funding for more than 100 programs, including school lunches, Head Start, grants for mental health services, SNAP, highway construction, and more.
Are my answers private?
By law, the Census Bureau cannot release any identifiable information about you or your home, even to law enforcement agencies. Title 13 of the U.S. Code ensures that your private data is protected. Your responses cannot be used against you by any government agency or court in any way—not by the FBI, DHS, or ICE.
How do I take the census?
By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:
- By phone.
- By mail.
