The 2020 Census is underway! As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, the census is a count conducted every 10 years of every person living in America. By now, the majority of U.S. households received an invitation to complete a simple questionnaire about who lives at your address on April 1, including children. Census data is critical for public services like healthcare clinics, emergency response preparedness and education programs.
Here are three ways you can get involved:
1. Respond to the 2020 Census online at 2020census.gov, by phone at 844.330.2020 (English) and 844.468.2020 (Spanish), or by mail. Phone lines are open every day, including weekends from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. You can call with questions or complete your census form by phone.
