The 2020 Census is coming! census

Completed every ten years, the census counts every person in every U.S. state and five U.S. territories and will begin April 1, 2020. It is required by law and provides crucial data that helps decide how federal funding is distributed for schools, roads, fire departments and other resources that affect our day-to-day lives.

2020 Census will be the first time you may complete the questionnaire online. Detailed information will be mailed to you so that you are able to be counted correctly.

You might wonder what you’ll be asked. A few of the questions will be: your age, gender, and the number of people who live in your home, including children. The census will never ask for Social Security numbers, bank or credit card numbers, money or donations, or anything related to political parties.
