In mid-March, households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census.
By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:
- By phone.
- By mail.
For the first time, the U.S. Census Bureau will accept census responses online. The process will be quick and secure. You can respond to the 2020 Census in less time than it takes to finish your morning coffee. Visit 2020census.gov to learn more about what to expect.
Importance of the Data
