The 2020 Census will be taking place March to early summer 2020.
The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. The 2020 Census counts the population in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire—online, by phone, or by mail.
The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners,
teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and
support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in
federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and
other resources based on census data.
