Five things you should know about the 2020 Census
It is not too late to respond to the census.Responses will be taken through October, but if you respond now, it is less likely that a census-taker will come to your door.
Your responses can never be used against you. Federal law prohibits the U.S. Census Bureau or any census employee from sharing your information with any other government agency.
Every single person matters. Each person counted here affects how much funding our communities receive to provide important services and shape our political representation for the next ten years. It’s very important that you include everyone living or staying in the home, regardless of the person’s age or relationship to the householder.
Responding to the census is quick and easy.The census questionnaire asks just a few questions about each individual and takes just a few minutes to respond online, by phone or by mail.
You can make extra money. The Census Bureau is hiring people throughout the state to help collect census responses from households that do not respond on their own. These flexible jobs pay very well and work around your schedule. Apply at 2020census.gov/jobs
