It Is Important!
The Census guides billions of dollars in annual spending on hospitals, schools, emergency services, roads and more, and each person missed will cost our community thousands of dollars over the next decade. Participation helps your community!
It Is Safe!
The Census is only a few questions long, and your answers are protected by federal law. The Census Bureau cannot share your information with anyone, including other federal agencies.
It Is Easy!
Much of the Census will be conducted online, with mail and phone responses also accepted. In-person follow-ups will help make sure we count everybody. Look for instructions on
participating beginning early in 2020.
Responding to the Census
Homes will begin receiving their invitation to respond to the 2020 Census between March 12-20. These official Census Bureau mailings will include detailed information and a Census ID for completing the Census online. Take a look at this fact sheet to learn how the census will invite everyone to respond.
The 2020 Census will ask a few simple questions about you and everyone who is or will be living with you on April 1, 2020. This video will guide you through the process of responding online.
