Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau undertakes a mammoth task: counting all the people residing in the United States. This count affects the allocation of funding for our community’s public resources (e.g., roads, hospitals, schools), how we plan for the future, and our voice in government. Needless to say, each and every American should participate in this process.
Ninety-five percent of households will receive an initial invitation to respond to the 2020 Census in the mail beginning the week of March 12th. Depending on how likely your areas is to respond online, you’ll receive either an invitation encouraging you to respond online or an invitation along with a paper questionnaire. For the first time, in 2020 the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online. The process will be quick and secure. You can respond to the census in less time than it takes to finish your morning coffee. You’ll still be able to respond by mail if that’s the method you prefer.
Every household that hasn’t already responded will receive additional reminders and will eventually receive a paper questionnaire. To make this process easier and less costly please try to participate as promptly as possible.
