2020 United States Census

It’s that time again - the 2020 United States Census is currently underway. Responding to the Census is simple and you can complete the survey online in English or Spanish, by phone or by mail. It’s important to note that you should have received, or will soon receive, an invitation in the mail from the Census Bureau. This invitation will include a 12-digit Census ID, and you will need this ID number to complete the survey online. The Census counts the population in the United States and five U.S. Territories, and provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products and support for you and your community.
