Every Census Response Matters!
The data collected from the 2020 Census provides valuable information about populations in our towns, counties, and state. That information is then used to determine how federal funding is distributed and voting areas are redistricted. Once-a-decade census data helps businesses, researchers, and communities make important decisions. The data can help inform where your community needs a new fire department, more funding for school lunches, or new roads and more!
The National Census Day is April 1, 2020!
By this date, each home in the United States will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. When the invitation arrives, you can respond for your household online, by phone, or by mail.
