Spread the Word: The Time to Act is Now!

Beginning on Constitution Day, September 17, through Sunday, September 20, join Census Bureau partners nationwide in reminding your community that time is running out to respond to the 2020 Census.

About the 2020 Census

The U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the population every 10 years. The 2020 Census counts everyone who lives in the U.S. on April 1, 2020. Census statistics help determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and how billions of dollars in federal funds will be allocated by state, local, and federal lawmakers every year for the next 10 years.

 

Time is running out. Respond now!
