Shape Your Future. Start Here.

What is the 2020 Census?

Every 10 years, as required by the Constitution, the federal government counts everyone who lives in the United States. This count includes the collection of basic information, such as age, sex, and race, about every person living in each household.

When will the 2020 Census start?

The U.S. Census Bureau will begin sending 2020 Census packets to households in March 2020.

The value of the census

Our responses to the 2020 Census are vital for shaping the future for ourselves, our families, and our communities, including the people our faith tells us we should help the most. Data collected in the census are used to:

Provide a picture of our nation that is used to help determine where to build new schools, hospitals, and businesses.
Inform the allocation of more than $675 billion in federal funding to states and communities each year for programs that support education, housing, health care, transportation, food needs, and more.
Monitor, enforce, and evaluate civil rights laws, regulations, and policies designed to prevent discrimination and ensure voting rights.

How can I respond to the census?

In 2020, for the first time ever, the Census Bureau will accept responses online and by phone, but you can still respond by mail if you prefer. You can respond as soon as you receive your 2020 Census packet. Be sure to count everyone who is living in your household.

Can the information I provide for the census be used against me?

No, it cannot. The Census Bureau is very strict about protecting the privacy and confidentiality of every individual and household. This protection is required by law, with severe consequences for violations. The Census Bureau is not allowed to share information about individuals or specific households, and your information cannot be used against you by any government agency or court—not by the police department, DHS, ICE, FBI, or CIA.

Recruiting Temporary Workers for the 2020 Census

The recruiting of hundreds of thousands of temporary workers for the 2020 is now underway.

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting 2.7 million people across the country to assist with the 2020 Census count.  Learn more about the jobs so you can earn some extra income while helping your community

Applying for one of these jobs is simple. Just visit 2020census/jobs or call 855-JOB-2020 and select option 3 for more information. Pay rates for field and clerical jobs can be found at 2020census.gov/jobs/pay-and-locations.

What’s next?

In the coming weeks and months, you’ll hear more from us about the 2020 Census, including information about its value and its confidentiality protections and how the count will be conducted. Together we can stand up and be counted.

You can learn more about the 2020 Census at 2020census.gov.
