YOU MATTER.
GET COUNTED.

Every ten years, the U.S. Constitution requires the federal government to count all persons living in the US. On April 1, 2020, all DC residents will have three ways to respond to the census: online, by phone, or by mail. Learn why it matters here.

Countdown to the 2020 US Census

 

Census 101

The census will ask basic information such as name, age, sex, Hispanic origin, race and ethnicity, relationship of household members, and homeownership status. Only one person in a household needs to complete the form. The person completing the census form should include every person.
