2020 Census

The Census helps decide the number and shape of legislative districts; how government funding for hospitals, roads, school and other services is distributed; and where businesses invest.

There are three ways to respond to the 2020 Census: online, phone, or mail.

There is one Census for one home. Complete the Census for everyone living in your house, apartment or mobile home - no matter their age and whether they are related to you or not. Count yourself where you live & sleep most of the time. Only count people under your roof.
