Census Day is April 1st, 2020

Why The Census Is Important

  • Determines fair representation in the democratic process
  • Serves as a tool for government and business planning
  • Ensures federal funding is allocated appropriately for programs such as
    • Medicare
    • Housing Assistance
    • Low income energy assistance (LIHEAP)

What You Can Expect

  • This year, for the first time, you will be invited to complete the Census online or by telephone
  • In March, you will receive an invitation in the mail to respond to the census online or via phone
  • If you have not responded online or by phone by mid-April you will be sent a paper questionnaire
  • Anyone who has not responded after this time will be followed up with, in person, by a Census Bureau Employee
