How to Respond
One person should respond for each home. That person must be at least 15 years old and know general information about each person living in the residence.
In 2020 you can reply to the Census in one of three ways:
Homes will be receiving their invitations to respond to the 2020 Census between March 12 and March 20, 2020. (It will look like the image on this page.)
These official Census Bureau mailings will provide detailed instructions about how to respond as well as a Census ID to use if you wish to complete the Census online.
In April, Census-takers will begin visiting college students living on campus, people living in senior centers, and others who live among large groups of people.
If you have not responded by May, expect a Census-taker to visit your home. The Census Bureau wants to ensure everyone is counted.
