The 2020 Census is underway and is ready for America to respond. Plan to include everyone you expect to live in your home on April 1. You can respond online in one of 13 languages and find assistance in many more.
Here's what to look for in the mail this week: The first invitations arrived at an estimated 140 million households between March 12-20. Every household that hasn’t already responded will receive additional reminder letters in the mail between Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 24.
Respond to the 2020 Census as soon as you receive your invitation — and when you’re finished, make sure your friends, families, and social networks know about the importance of responding.
The 2020 Census response rate map shows how cities and towns across the country are now responding. The map will be updated daily around 3 p.m. for everyone to see the response rate in their area and compare it to other areas across the nation.
2020 Census Operational Updates
The U.S. Census Bureau continues to carefully monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and follow the guidance of federal, state, and local health authorities. We are adjusting some operations with two key principles in mind: protecting the health and safety of our staff and the public, and fulfilling our statutory requirement to deliver the 2020 Census counts to the President on schedule.
