The next Census will take place in Spring of 2020. Your participation is critical to ensuring that you are fairly represented at all levels of government and that the local and state government bodies receive a fair share of federal funding to support a wide variety of projects and services. Census data is also used in the public and private sectors for research and decision making.
What is the Census?
Every 10 years, the Census Bureau counts every resident in the United States, as mandated by the Constitution.

When will the Census begin?
The Census Bureau will send out information in early March 2020 on how to respond to the Census online. Online response is one new way to respond to the Census in 2020. Residents may also respond to the paper questionaire or by phone. Reminder postcards and follow up visits will begin in late March 2020 and continue through July 2020 for any residents who have not responded.
