2020 Census

The 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade. It provides a snapshot of our nation; who we are, where we live, and so much more.

The results of this once-a-decade count determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives. They are also used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

Over the next decade, lawmakers, business owners, and many others will use 2020 Census data to make critical decisions. The results will show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children. The results will also inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated to more than 100 programs, including Medicaid, Head Start, block grants for community mental health services, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP.


The easiest way to fill out the census for your house hold is using the online portal using the Census card you received in the mail.

Complete Now!

You can also complete your census through the following alternatives:

  • Mail

    You may first receive information explaining how to respond online to the American Community Survey. We will automatically send you a paper form in about two weeks if you do not complete the survey online. In Puerto Rico and some hard to reach areas in the United States, only a paper questionnaire is mailed.

    Use a pen with blue or black ink, or a #2 pencil to fill out the form. Mail it back in the postage-paid return envelope. If you have trouble answering a question, call us at 1-800-354-7271, and we will help you.

    You do not need to mail the paper form back if you completed the survey online or by telephone.

    If you have lost the envelope, send your completed questionnaire to:

    U.S. Census Bureau
    P.O. Box 5240
    Jeffersonville, IN 47199-5240

  • Phone

    Call toll-free 1-800-354-7271.

    Note: For callers with hearing loss, you can reach our toll-free number above using your state or national relay services (a.k.a. TRS) based on your mode of communication preference (TTY, VCO, CapTel, Videophone, etc.).

    Why would the Census Bureau call?

    If we don't hear from you online, by mail, or if you leave questions blank, we may call you.

    If you respond by mail, we may call if you have six or more people at your address. The mail-in form only has room for five.

    Do you want to verify that the phone call is legitimate?

    If someone has contacted you about the American Community Survey and you'd like to verify that the phone call is legitimate, you can call one of our telephone centers directly:

    • Jeffersonville, IN: 1-800-523-3205
    • Tucson, AZ: 1-800-642-0469
  • In-person

    If we don't hear from you online, by mail, or by phone, a Census Bureau field representative may visit you in person to help you complete the American Community Survey.

    In-person interviews are also conducted with people living in group housing and people living in remote areas.

    Do you want to verify that the visit is legitimate?

    If someone has contacted you about the American Community Survey and you'd like to verify that the visit is legitimate, you can call your Census Regional Office.

    If you wish to independently confirm that the person at your door is a Census Bureau employee, you can enter their name in the Census Bureau’s staff search website. Enter in the first and last name only to verify a field representative's identity.
