What is the Census?
As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, the census is a once-every-decade count of everyone living in the country. When it's known how many people live in your community, organizations and businesses are better equipped to evaluate the services and programs needed, such as clinics, schools and roads. It also determines how seats in Congress are distributed among the 50 states.
In March, the U.S. Census Bureau sent every household an invitation to complete a simple questionnaire about who lives at your address on April 1, 2020. You will have the opportunity to respond online, by phone, or by mail, and federal law keeps those responses safe and secure.
