The 2020 Census is happening now. The Census is mandated by the US Constitution and the United States has been conducting the Census every ten years since 1790. Census 2020 will be the 24th Census.
Residents should have already received their invitation to respond online. The Census is a very brief questionnaire and answers to questions are kept completely confidential. The most important thing you can do is respond online, by phone, or by mail when you receive your invitation. Responding now will minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up.
For more information on the Census and how the Census Bureau is making operational adjustments due to COVID-19, please visit https://2020census.gov/en.html.
