Today is Census Day!
April 1, 2020
Running out of things to do at home while you’re social distancing?
Why not fill out your census information?
The 2020 census officially begins
today, April 1. The census is conducted every 10 years and counts every person living in the U.S. It is used by the federal government to allocate funding and political representation throughout the country.
You can respond to the census, online
, over the phone or by mail with the traditional paper form.
The Census Bureau began mailing out invitations to complete the census in March. If you did not get your mail invitation (they do not mail to PO Boxes), or at your physical address, you are asked to complete the census online
or over the phone (844-330-2020).
One person from each household should complete the census form, and people should be counted in the residence that they are living in on April 1. The Census Bureau cannot share your information with any other government agencies, including law enforcement or immigration officials.
The Census Bureau will not make phone calls or send emails about the census, and census workers will never ask for your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers, ask for money or ask about anything on behalf of a political party.
