(Monday, November 25, 2019) – Once every 10 years, the United States Census Bureau counts every resident in the country. It is important that we all participate in the 2020 Census as it maintains an accurate representation of our population. The Census helps shape many parts of our community, including determining how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year. When you respond to the census, your answers are kept anonymous. The U.S. Census Bureau is bound by law to protect your answers and keep them strictly confidential; they are used only to produce statistics. This will be the first time that responses will be accepted online and via telephone. To learn more about the Census, visit 2020census.gov.
