The 2020 Census counts every person living the United States and five U.S. territories until final deadline on October 31. Remember you can respond to the census online!
The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S.Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. Each home should have received an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire, by phone, online, or by mail.
The census provides critical data for decisions made on schools, roads, hospitals, fire departments and many other recourses in our community. It is very important for legislative activities as it determines the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives and also on the state level.
