UNITED STATES CENSUS

The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community – for health clinics, fire departments, schools, roads, and highways.

By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:

  • Online.
