pic_hispanic_mother_w_childPersonal information provided on the census is kept confidential by law. An individual’s responses can only be used to produce statistics. They cannot be shared with law enforcement agencies or used against people by any government agency or court in any way.

You will be asked a few simple questions, like age, sex, and the number of people who live in your home, including children. The census will never ask for Social Security numbers, bank or credit card numbers, money or donations, or anything related to political parties.

Timeline

The 2020 Census is underway - more than half the households across America have responded - and more are responding every day. Online, phone and mailed self-responses will continue throughout the data collection process.  In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. Census Bureau has adjusted 2020 Census operations.

  • March: Households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census online, by phone, or by mail.  
  • April 1: Census Day is observed nationwide. By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. When you respond to the census, you'll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020.
  • March - Oct: Online, phone and mailed self-responses continue throughout the data collection process.
