COVID-19

The 2020 Census is underway and the most important thing you can do is respond online, by phone, or by mail when you receive your invitation. Responding now will minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up.

2020 Census Timeline

Most households in the country will receive invitations to complete the 2020 Census beginning in mid-March. For the first time, you can choose to respond to the census online—in addition to responding by phone or by mail. In May 2020, census takers will begin following up with households that haven’t responded on their own to make sure everyone is counted. Our goal is to get as many people as possible to respond quickly, and on their own, reducing the need for more costly in-person interviews.

Your response matters.

Health clinics. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of your community.

Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.

The results determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.

Let’s all set a goal to improve over the 2010 Census Response Rate. See how your Township is doing in the table below.
