  • United States 2020 CensusThe April 1, 2020 census is right around the corner! Households will receive a Census Post Card in the mail to complete the 2020 Census. Once you receive it, you can respond online. In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with any households that haven’t responded to the census. In 2020, for the first time ever, the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online, but you can still respond by phone or mail if you prefer. Responding should take less time than it takes to finish your morning coffee. Responding to the census is not only your civic duty; it also affects the amount of funding your community receives, how your community plans for the future, and your representation in government. Learn more about the upcoming census by visiting our 2020 Census page or visit the 2020 Census website directly for full details.
