April 1, 2020 – NATIONAL CENSUS DAY

April 1: Today is National Census Day, a key reference date for the 2020 Census—not a deadline. 2020 Census will use this day to determine who is counted and where in the 2020 Census. When you respond, you’ll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020, and include everyone who usually lives and sleeps in your home. You can respond before or after that date. 2020 Census encourages you to respond as soon as you can.

The Census is much more than simply a head count. It shows how communities have changed and helps determine where to build new schools, hospitals and businesses; how federal funding is distributed; and how congressional seats are apportioned. That is why an accurate count is so important.

NOTE: In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. Census Bureau has adjusted 2020 Census operations. I’ve attached the latest 2020 Census updates promoting self-response as the Census continues to be working during this social distancing and uncertain time in our lives.

Responding to the 2020 Census
The 2020 Census will ask a few simple questions about you and everyone who is or will be living with you on April 1, 2020.
For the first time, you can choose to complete the census online, by phone, or by mail. Find out more about each of these methods below:
• Online Response Guide
• Phone Response Guide
• Paper (Mail) Response Guide
Please note that if you are responding online, you must complete the census in one sitting, as you don’t have the ability to save your progress.
See the questions the census asks here.
If you do not receive an invitation to respond from the Census Bureau, you may respond online or visit Contact Us page to call 2020 Census phone line.
