The Census determines the number of Representatives each state has in Congress and is used to draw district boundaries. Census data is used to distribute billions of dollars in Federal and State funding. Being counted brings those resources back to your community.
It is Easy
The Census form includes ten questions about each person's age, gender, race, and relationship to householder. It should take about 10 minutes to fill out, more if there are more people living in the home.
In 2020, you will be able to fill out the census form online, over the phone, by paper, or in person.
It is Safe
All data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau is confidential and may not be turned over to any other government agency including immigration enforcement or even the President.
