The U.S. Constitution mandates a headcount every 10 years. The results of the Census are used to reapportion congressional and state legislative districts, distribute more than $675 billion in federal funds and forecast future transportation needs for communities. Businesses use Census data to decide where to invest and create jobs.
In mid-March, the U.S. Census will send a mailing to every residence, inviting one member of the household to complete a questionnaire. For the first time in 2020, questionnaires can be filled out online. They can also be completed by mail or by phone.
The Census is easy, important and secure. Federal law protects your Census response. The Census does not ask for full social security numbers, political affiliations, pin codes or pass codes. The information is not shared with immigration enforcement agencies or law enforcement agencies.
