Responding to the 2020 Census is easy, safe, and important. It has never been easier to respond without having to meet a census taker. Help Shape Your Future and Your Community’s Future — April 1 was Census Day, the day that determines who is counted in the 2020 Census and where they are counted. But you can still go online and be counted!
When completing the census, include everyone living in your home on April 1, 2020. You can respond online in one of 13 languages and find assistance in many more.

Responding to the census is important because it helps inform funding for key public services for your community like education programs and schools, hospitals and healthcare, roads and bridges, and emergency and disaster response. 38.4 percent of households across the nation have responded to the 2020 Census since invitations began arriving in mailboxes last month.

About the 2020 Census:
The U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the population every 10 years. The 2020 Census will count everyone who lives in the U.S. as of April 1, 2020. Census statistics help determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and how billions of dollars in federal funds will be allocated by state, local, and federal lawmakers every year for the next 10 years.
