Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States, creating national awareness of the importance of the census and its valuable statistics. The decennial census was first taken in 1790, as mandated by the Constitution. It counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.
The 2020 Census will be sent to every household by April 1, 2020 and there are three convenient ways to respond: by mail, phone or online. The 2020 United States Census is separate from the annual street listing, which is often called the local census. This annual street listing document is used to confirm your residency and keep your voter registration status up to date. It is important to return both your annual street listing and the United States Census in 2020.
