Hindus may have discovered 0, but the census requires us to be more.

The 2020 census is here and we are all required to participate.

You have until April 1 to complete the paper form mailed to you, or submit online.
If you haven’t received the form, you can take it online at my2020census.gov.

It takes less than 5 minutes. After April 1, the Census Bureau will conduct home visits to those who haven’t completed the form.

Why is the census important?

  • It determines how much federal funding your community receives to improve roads, schools, and public infrastructure.
  • It determines how much representation you get in Congress.
  • It helps prepare your community for emergency readiness.

Who should complete the census?

Everyone! If you live in the US — whether you’re a citizen or not — you are required by law to be counted in the census. The Census Bureau is required to protect your answers and does not disclose personal information.
