Important!

Only one person per household needs to respond to the Census questionnaire on behalf of all persons living at the same address.

Household may consist of members who are not related by blood or marriage, such as roommates living at a housing unit with the same address.

Roommates who share an apartment or a house need to designate one person to respond on behalf of everyone.

Ways to Respond

By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You can respond online, by phone, or by mail. The access code to respond online will be provided in the official U.S. Census Bureau letter.

 

Questions 2020 Census will NOT ask

During the 2020 Census, the Census Bureau will never ask you for:

  • Citizenship or immigration status
  • Your Social Security number
  • Money or donations
  • Anything on behalf of a political party
  • Your bank or credit card account numbers

If someone claiming to be from the Census Bureau contacts you via email or phone and asks you for one of these things, it's a scam, and you should not cooperate.

If someone visits your home to collect a response for the 2020 Census, you can do the following to verify their identity:

  • First, check to make sure that they have a valid ID badge, with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date.
  • If you still have questions about their identity, you can call 800-923-8282 to speak with a local Census Bureau representative.
