Census 2020

The U.S. Constitution requires that there be a census (official count) of the country's population once every 10 years. Everyone living in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories is required to respond. Information regarding how to respond to the census will be mailed to households March 12-20, 2020. Online and telephone response options will be available after March 12th. For households that have not responded by the end of April, the Census Bureau will begin in-person visits in May, but households can still respond online, by phone, or by mail until July 31, 2020.

Please let Library staff know if you have questions regarding the census. Staff can provide help with locating information about response options and online questionnaire guides and can explain basic features of the online form, such as how to navigate the pages or change the language. Staff are not able to assist with the completion of the census form or interpret census questions. Please see the pages below for additional information.
