Complete the Census

The 2020 Census is happening now! Everyone living is the US is counted and all are able to respond online, by phone, or by mail.

Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year. And remember, when you respond to the census, your answers are kept anonymous. They are used only to produce statistics, determining where to build roads, hospitals, schools, and so much more!
