2020 Census – English

The Census is for everyone.


The US Constitution says the Census counts everyone living in the US every ten years – in 2020 it will ask nine basic questions about people in your household. It will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

The Census counts the population of different communities across the country, and these numbers are used to decide which neighborhoods should have more money and resources. This money supports our schools, roads, public transportation, and hospitals and also funds programs like Medicaid and SNAP. It is very important that everyone in our community is counted in the 2020 Census.

Census day is April 1, 2020. You will receive a code by mail to complete your census form online in your language of choice beginning in March 2020. You can complete the online form on a smartphone or computer. The Internet is an easy way to complete the Census, but paper forms are available too. You can also complete the Census survey by phone.
