Be Counted in the 2020 Census
The 2020 Census is coming. The count is mandated by the Constitution to count everyone living in the U.S. and has happened every 10 years since 1790.
In March 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau will send every household an invitation to complete a simple questionnaire about who lives at your address on April 1, 2020. The 2020 Census is easy, safe and important.
Census results help determine how billions in federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year for services and programs, such as schools, clinics and roads.
Census results also determine how many seats Iowa will have in Congress and our community’s representation in the state Legislature.
How to respond?
The 2020 Census marks the first time people can respond online. You will also be able to respond by phone. If you do not respond online or by phone, you will eventually receive a paper questionnaire form in the mail. For households that do not self-respond, a census taker will follow up in person to have you complete the census.
Who do I count in my home?
The person completing the form should list all people living in the household as of April 1, 2020,
This includes everyone living and sleeping at your home most of the time, such as relatives and friends, people who are formally or informally renting from you.
Remember to count any children living with you, including foster children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, children of friends (even if they are temporarily living with you). Children who split time between homes are counted where they live April 1, 2020.
What happens to my responses?
When you respond to the census, your answers are protected by law. The Census Bureau keeps your individual responses strictly confidential and used only to produce aggregate statistics.
What if I have other questions?

To shape the future of your community, be counted.
