Make Yourself Count 2020 Census

Friday, September 4, 2020

As of September 1st, at least 4 out of every 5 households in the U.S. have completed the 2020 Census. Self-response and field operations of the 2020 Census will run through Wednesday, September 30th. If your household hasn't responded yet, it's not too late to do so. It's important to be counted because it will help secure essential funding and adequate political representation. An accurate population count is especially important in historically undercounted communities that have been the most affected by COVID and and the economic effects of the pandemic. Not being counted affects the amount of funding that communities receive for the 10 years.

You can self-respond online via or by calling 1-844-330-2020 (English) or 1-844-468-2020 (Spanish). Or mail in your printed 2020 Census questionnaire by September 30th. Pre-paid postage for the mail-in form is provided.
