2020 Census

Every town is an important part of the American story.

Make sure your town’s story is told by responding to the 2020 Census – the count of everyone living in the United States. When you do, you’ll also help your town get the most out of the American dream.

Responding is important for your community

Census responses provide data that can attract new businesses and the jobs that come with them. The data also informs where over $675 billion in federal funding is spent each year in states and communities. That includes money for things like: Medicare Part B, Special Education, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Cooperative Extension Service, Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant, Water and Waste disposal systems for rural communities

Every person counts!  Whether it’s funding in communities across your state or helping determine the number of seats your state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives – every count makes an equal impact.

Responding is safe: your personal information is kept confidential by law.
Responding is easy: To complete the census, answer a handful of questions online, by phone, or by mail. Choose the best option that works for you.
