In the spring of 2020, the US Census will take place. The census is a count of all people living in the US and takes place every 10 years. It is simple and confidential to complete. For the first time, you can respond online. You will receive a unique identifying number in the mail, which will allow you to fill out the online form beginning March 2020. Here are some things to know:
Your identity remains anonymous - regardless of immigration status, the information cannot be used against you
The Census is important - it helps decide how much federal money our school districts get over the next 10 years, and how much our state will get for parks, neighborhood improvements, public health, transportation, etc
The Census is safe - all the data collected is protected under law and remain confidential for 72 years by law.
