  • Can I help someone fill out their census form?

    Yes, you can help someone fill out their form! The Census Bureau can also help. If you have questions about how to fill out the census, you can visit 2020census.gov or call the Census Bureau at 1-800-923-8282.

  • Are my answers kept confidential?

    Yes, your answers are kept confidential. It is against the law for any Census Bureau employee to disclose or publish any census or survey information that identifies an individual or business. This is true even when other governmental agencies ask for the data—other governmental agencies do not have the legal right to access this information.

  • What information will be requested?

    The census will collect basic information about the people living in your household. When completing the census, you should count everyone who is living in your household on April 1, 2020.

  • Do I have to complete the census?

    It is mandatory for every U.S. citizen to complete the 2020 U.S. Census. Every household is required to answer all questions (approx. 40-minute commitment), according to Section 221 of Title 13 of the U.S. Code. Those who turn in incomplete forms will either get a follow up by a U.S. census taker or a phone call.

  • The census asks every household to answer nine questions. These questions are: how many people live in the house or apartment, whether the property is owned or rented, phone number, name, sex, and then a few questions about the age, race, and ethnicity of each person. The answers to these questions are used to help enforce anti-discrimination laws, set federal funding levels, and much more.

  • 1. Census data is used to figure out how much money programs and state/local governments will get from the Federal Government to pay for certain services.
  • 2. Police departments, and town and city planners are among many public-sector entities who count on these annual results to plan services and policies: from building roads and power plants to attracting jobs and planning emergency evacuations.
  • 3. An accurate census count of all the vibrant and diverse neighborhoods in our country brings critical funding and resources to our schools and communities.
  • The U.S. Constitution (Article I, Section 2) mandates a headcount every 10 years of everyone residing in the 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas of the United States.
