Be Counted: U.S. Census Arrives in 2020

2020 is a U.S. Census year. What does that mean? Well, every 10 years the U.S. Census attempts to count everyone in the country. Census results are the basis for congressional representation and help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funds is distributed each year to support vital programs in states and communities across the country. These funds shape local health care, housing, education, transportation, employment, and public policy. That’s why it is so important to be counted.

We encourage you to do your part and participate in the 2020 Census.  Information on how to participate will be mailed by the U.S. Census bureau in early spring 2020.

The Census is also hiring thousands of temporary workers. Learn how you can apply to help make the Census 2020 count here.
