Every 10 years, people across the country fill out the Census in order to have an accurate count of all people in the United States. Californians can complete the 2020 Census online, by phone, or by mail (paper forms are being mailed to households that have not yet responded to the census). A Census ID is not required in order to respond. Be counted and help secure critical resources for your community today!
Census data determines funding allocations for schools, child care programs, road maintenance projects, and social assistance programs. Census data informs where new hospitals are built, improves health programs, and increases jobs and business opportunities. The Census also determines California’s federal funding for important community services that help support our families and gives us a fair share of representation in California and Washington, D.C.
Information collected during the 2020 Census can’t be shared or used against you in any way. Your information is only used to generate statistics. Do it today! It only takes a few moments.
