Be Counted: Census 2020


Get ready for the U.S. Census! The Census counts all people who live in the United States, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. Starting in March, each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire - online, by phone, or by mail. The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. If you do not respond to the Census, you will receive a visit at your home from a Census worker. Visit  for more information, in multiple languages.

The Census Matters to All of Us

Completing the Census matters to all of us, as the results have a big impact in our community. Census data directs federal money to projects big and small, including highway repairs, local health care, school lunch programs, senior assistance programs, emergency preparedness and more. The more people who respond, the more resources that are allocated towards our community. The Census also provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and our community.  The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts. Learn more about the impact the Census has on the community here.

Census Results are Private and Confidential

The Census is completely confidential. Your responses are sealed and can only be used by the non-partisan Census Bureau to produce statistics. No other government agency can see or use Census responses. Your response to the Census does not affect eligibility for government benefits or assistance. It’s important to note that the U.S. Census Bureau will never ask for a social security number, money or donations, political party affiliation, bank or credit card information, or your mother’s maiden name.
