KEEP CALM. STAY HOME. TAKE THE CENSUS.
Just over one week ago, on March 12th, the Census opened amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. By now, you should have received up to two separate mailings containing your household's unique Census ID code.
Have you completed your Census yet?
You may be wondering how COVID-19 is affecting the U.S. Census Bureau operations. You can find a statement on updates here. Some dates of specific initiatives have changed, but these updates do not change the fact that the Census is open and can now be filled out online, by phone, or by mail.
Important facts about the Census:
Census results are used to determine the apportionment of U.S. and State Congressional Districts.
Census data determines how more than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed to states and communities annually—this is bound to be crucial in the coming years as we recover from COVID-19.
There will NOT be a citizenship question on the Census.
All census responses are protected under Title 13 of the US Code. Answers can only be used to produce statistics.
