2020 Census

In mid-March, homes across the country began receiving official U.S. Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census; either online, by phone, or by mail - all without having to meet a census taker. In your response, plan to include everyone living in your home as of April 1, 2020. You can respond online in one of 13 languages and find assistance in many more. April 1 was Census Day, a key reference date for the 2020 Census—not a deadline. The Census Bureau uses this day to determine who is counted and where in the 2020 Census. When you respond, you'll tell the Census Bureau where you lived as of April 1, 2020, and include everyone who usually lives and sleeps in your home. You can respond before or after that date. The Census Bureau encourages you to respond as soon as you can.

Useful Information:
  1. The majority of households have received mailed invitations to complete the Census online or by phone, and will not receive a mail-in census survey unless the household has yet to respond by the fifth mail notification.
  2. Filling out the Census is easy and language-accessible, and you do not need the 12-digit code tied to your address, you can simply affirm your address online or over the phone.
  3. Everyone that lives in the household for the majority of the year, or has recently moved into the household before and on April 1, 2020 needs to be counted. Include babies born on April 1, 2020, the elderly, and non-relatives (All information gathered by the US Census Bureau is legally protected from all authorities other than the US Census Bureau).
  4. If someone visits your home to collect a response for the census, learn how you can verify if they are a census worker by visiting https://2020census.gov/en/census-takers.html.The U.S. Census Bureau is committed to making the census process safe for all participants.
