UPDATE (March 23, 2020): While COVID-19 may have disrupted where you are living on April 1, the U.S. Census Bureau has provided guidance on how college students should file their Census forms. Please review our Frequently Asked Questions page for specific information.

When you do the math, it's easy to see what an accurate count of residents can do for your community: better infrastructure, improved services, and a brighter tomorrow for everyone. In fact, the information the census collects helps to determine how billions of dollars in federal funding are spent each year on things like:

  • Hospitals
  • Job training centers
  • New schools
  • School programs such as Head Start
  • Senior centers
  • Bridges, tunnels, roads, and highways
  • Emergency services, and
  • Natural Disaster Response
