Submitted by United States Census

The 2020 Census is a once-a-decade population count of everyone who lives in the United States on April 1. Responses from the census help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds are allocated for critical public services and programs in communities around the country each year for the next 10 years.

If you haven’t responded yet, respond now online at, by phone, or by mail. You should respond for the address of your usual residence (which is the place where you live and sleep most of the time) as of April 1, 2020, even if you were temporarily staying elsewhere on April 1, 2020.

If you’ve already responded to the 2020 Census or someone has responded on your behalf (like parents or roommates), and you’ve since moved, you don’t need to respond again. But if you don’t know whether you were already counted by someone else who lives with you, you should go ahead and respond to the 2020 Census — be sure to count yourself and
everyone else living there, providing as much information as you have for each person. The Census Bureau can identify and correct duplicate responses.

To learn more about who to count and where to count yourself for a variety of other circumstances, including displacement as a result of natural disasters and living in transitory locations, visit “Who To Count”.

Make sure you’re counted in the right place by responding online now at, by phone, or by filling out the paper form you received in the mail. If you didn’t receive a paper form, and you don’t have a Census ID for the address where you need to count yourself, you can use the online or phone response options without using an ID. You should
respond for everyone living at your address, providing as much information as you have for each person. (See more details about “Responding to the Census”.)
