Census 2020


Shape the future for your family!

Every 10 years, the census counts everyone living in the United States. It is important to count every person living in your home to make sure your community and others across the nation are accurately funded and represented for the next decade. Count everyone, from grandpa to the new baby. No matter who lives in your home, be sure to count them all in the 2020 Census. This includes grandparents, young children, foster children, and non-relatives who are living with you. Information collected in the census will inform the allocation of more than $675 billion in federal funding each year. That includes money for things like: › First responders › School meals › Medicare and Medicaid › Adoption assistance › Food assistance programs › Libraries and community centers > Village Parks Your response is safe. Your personal information is kept confidential by law. Your responses can be used only for statistical purposes. They cannot be used for law enforcement purposes or to determine your personal eligibility for government benefits. Your family can help you respond. The online census form is available in English and 12 additional languages. If you do not speak one of those languages, someone else in your home can complete the form for everyone in your home. If the adults in your home do not speak one of these languages, someone can translate for you. This includes a child in your home or a friend.
