2020 Census-Count Everyone-Shape Your Future

Required by the United States Constitution, a census or population count must be taken every 10 years. This count of everyone living in the United States provides critical data that determines the allocation of funding, the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and is used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

The U.S. Census Bureau is bound by law to protect your answers and keep them confidential. Everyone living in the United States and its territories is required to be counted in the 2020 Census.
