About the 2020 Census
The U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the population every 10 years. The 2020 Census counts everyone living in the U.S. on April 1, 2020. Census results determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds are allocated by local, state, and federal lawmakers every year for the next 10 years. Your response is required by law. And, the U.S. Census Bureau is legally bound to protect your answers and keep them strictly confidential.
