If you haven’t responded yet, respond now online at 2020census.gov, by phone, or by mail. You should respond for the address of your usual residence (which is the place where you live and sleep most of the time) as of April 1, 2020, even if you were temporarily staying elsewhere on April 1, 2020
Once every decade, the federal government conducts a census of the entire population to count everyone in the United States and record basic information about them. Our nation’s founders believed these data were so important that they mandated the decennial census in the Constitution. In 2020, for the first time ever, the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online.
2020 Census data informs the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funding each year, your representation in Congress, community initiatives, libraries, and more. Make sure you count everyone living in your home, including newborn babies and young children.
