The Census is a count taken every 10 years of every person in the United States. It is required by law and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The next Census is in 2020.
The 2020 Census will be online. If you can’t complete it online, you can participate by phone or request a paper copy. Instructions for phone and paper options will be part of the Census letter.
Having a complete count will help you, your family, and your neighbors receive more resources and have a stronger voice in the future of our community.
The online and phone response options will be in English and 12 other languages. They are English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Tagalog, Polish, French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese and Japanese.
The U.S. Census Bureau will also have print and video language guides in 59 languages including American Sign Language, braille, and large print guides.
The U.S. Census is required by the U.S. Constitution. If a household has not responded by the end of April, a Census taker will visit the home to collect responses. These in-person visits will begin in May.
Your responses will be safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Answers can only be used to produce statistics—they cannot be used against you in any way. The Census will protect your data through the safest and best practices available.
