What is the 2020 Census?
The 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands.
Important Dates: In March, homes across the country received invitations to complete the 2020 Census. It has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone or by mail—all without having to meet a census taker.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Census Bureau has adjusted 2020 Census operations to protect the health and safety of their employees and the public, and to ensure a complete and accurate count of all communities based on guidance from federal, state, and local health authorities.
HOW WILL THE PUBLIC KNOW CENSUS STAFF WILL BE BACK IN THE AREA?
The Census Bureau plans to alert the public, our staff, elected officials, local law enforcement, key stakeholders, and local media every Friday about where census staff will resume work in the week to follow. We will update the running list of locations at https://2020census.gov/en/news-events/operational-adjustments-covid-19.html.
