What is the census?

Every 10 years, the U.S. Constitution requires a head count of every person living in the United States, regardless of age, immigration status or type of residency. The census population count determines political and congressional representation and how federal funding is distributed to states and cities.

What questions are on the census?

The 2020 Census form will have a short set of questions about the number of people living in your household, their ages, race, ethnicity, marital status and housing type. For the first time, same sex couples will have the opportunity to identify themselves as such. View the sample 2020 Census questionnaire here for the full list of questions.

What if I'm not at my residence or have more than one residence on April 1, 2020?

People who have no permanent residence, or live at two or more residences during the year, or are traveling for long periods of time, are all counted at the residence where they live and sleep most of the time.

Why completing the census is important?

Completing the census is critically important because it determines funding for local communities and essential services, shapes congressional representation, determines legislative districts and much more.

Who gets counted?

People living in apartments, homes, prisons, college dorms, in shelters or living outdoors are all counted where they are staying on April 1, 2020. Children living in foster care or with grandparents are counted where they live and sleep most of the time as of April 1.

How do I fill out the census?

The U.S. Census Bureau will send a notice to all addresses in the U.S. beginning in March 2020. Only one person per household needs to physically fill out the census but they need to count EVERYONE in the household. So, if six people live in the house as of April 1, 2020, then the person filling out the form counts all six people. The census can be completed online, by phone or using a paper form.
