We Count! Census 2020
WHAT IS THE CENSUS?
The Census is a simple form used to count everyone living in the United States and make sure government resources are distributed equally.
WHO WILL BE COUNTED?
Citizens and non-citizens of all ages living in the U.S., including children.
WHEN IS THE CENSUS?
Starting in March 2020, households will receive a letter from the U.S. Census Bureau with instructions on how to fill out the survey online.
WHY IS THE CENSUS IMPORTANT?
Your survey response will help your community get its fair share of government resources for housing, schools, roads, health care, and more. Additionally, Census data is used to determine how many representatives our communities have in Congress. It's important for every household to complete the Census because each response gives us an accurate count of what our families need.
HOW TO BE COUNTED?
Complete the 10 question form that takes approximately 10 minutes and submit your survey online. Legally, the Census Bureau cannot share your information with anyone. Your answers are submitted anonymously, and personal information such as where you live and who lives in your home will be kept safe.
