Recently, you should have received a letter from the U.S. Census Bureau, inviting you to go online to respond to the 2020 federal Census.
The U.S. Census counts every person in the country every 10 years. The information gathered through the census is used to decide how much our communities get in state and federal money for things like public health, transportation, and education.
The census is quick, easy, and important, and all of your answers are confidential.
Please visit www.my2020census.gov and be counted today.
The U.S. Census Bureau has been working for more than a decade on the 2020 Census, and today is an important day: April 1- Census Day- the reference day for the 2020 Census. We use this day to determine who is counted and where in the 2020 Census.
NOTE: As of today, more than 36% of households across the country have already responded to the 2020 Census, but we have work to do. Check out the Response Rate Map to see how our community is doing.
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.
