The United States Constitution requires a count every 10 years of every person who is residing in the U.S., regardless of immigration status or citizenship. The Census Bureau’s goal for the 2020 Census is to “count everyone once, only once, and in the right place.”
In essence, communities that are undercounted are at a disadvantage economically and politically.
This is the 1st year the Census can be completed online!
At the end of April, if your residence has not responded by one of the three methods, your home may receive a visit from a census enumerator (someone who helps residents fill the form out in person!).
