2020 Census Information

2020 Census Information 01/23/2020


The next census is just around the corner! Beginning in mid-March, the U.S. Census Bureau will invite households across the country to participate in the 2020 Census.


For the first time, responses will be accepted online but participants may choose to respond by mail. The goal of the 2020 Census is a complete and accurate count of everyone living in the United States and five of its territories. 


This count affects the allocation of funding for our community's public resources (e.g., roads, schools, hospitals), plans for the future, and our voice in government.
