All Area Census Offices (ACOs) have resumed operations, and Census enumerators are out in most of the area conducting field operations.
A Census means a count of all residents living in the U.S. If a household does not self-respond,
the Census Bureau will visit it in-person to collect the data in order to obtain a 100% overall
response rate. Every 10 years, the United States counts everyone living in the country on April
1. Participating in the Census by completing your household's questionnaire is easy; it contains
only ten basic questions and it should take about ten minutes to complete.
How can people Self-respond?
Internet: The Census response website is live! Go directly to: https://my2020census.gov
Phone: Respond via phone:
Telephone Display Device (TDD): 844-467-2020
Mail: 20% of households will receive a paper form in the first wave of mailings, while the
remaining 80% will receive an invitation to respond online.
Everyone! Do include babies and young children (including foster children and any children in
their care), relatives and non-relatives, and long-term visitors. Every single person counts
in the #2020Census, from newborns to great - grandparents. Everyone living in your
home counts on your #2020Census: Roommates, siblings, significant others —
but not pets! Sorry, Spot!
Everyone residing in the United States on April 1, 2020 is to be counted.
