What is the census?
The census is a count that is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. It counts the population in the United States through the U.S. Census Bureau. The census provides critical data used by lawmakers, teachers, business owners to provide services for all of us.
Trillions of dollars of funding towards schools, hospitals, roads, fire departments, among many others, are allocated based on census data. In addition, census results determine how many seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as the creation of congressional and state legislative districts.
Who should I include on my form?
You should include everyone who lives and sleeps in your home the majority of the year as of April 1, 2020 – even if they are not related to you or on the lease. You should also fill out this form regardless of your citizenship or documentation status. Please know that the Census is completely confidential.
If you have temporarily relocated due to the coronavirus pandemic, you should report your previous address.
Is the census confidential?
Yes. The census is completely confidential. There is no citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The Census Bureau is bound by law to keep your information confidential, and the answers you provide are used only to produce statistics.
How do I know if someone is with the Census when they knock on my door?
The Bureau has temporarily paused field operations to protect the health and safety of Census workers and the American public during the coronavirus pandemic. When field operations resume, if someone knocks on your door and claims to be from the Census, you have the right to request to see their Census ID and you can call the Census at 800-923-8282 to confirm that the enumerator is in fact a Census employee/volunteer.
