WHAT IS THE 2020 CENSUS?
WHY IT MATTERS:
- Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.
- It’s mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 2: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.
WHEN CAN I RESPOND TO THE 2020 CENSUS?
Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire—online, by phone, or by mail.
Invitations to respond to the 2020 Census will be delivered by mail to your address between March 12-20, 2020.
Once you receive that invitation, you can respond online, by phone, or by mail.
