Off the Shelf: You Count!


Every ten years the U.S. Census Bureau counts every person living in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. Make sure you are counted by filling out the 2020 U.S. Census!

How will I be counted? You will receive an invitation to fill out the U.S. Census sometime between March 12 and March 20, 2020. You can respond to the census in one of three ways: online, through the mail or by phone.

Good to know: The census is available in 12 languages in addition to English. One person should fill out the U.S.Census form for everyone in the household. Your census information is kept completely confidential. It is protected by Title 13 of the U.S. Code. It cannot be released to anyone, not even law enforcement, for 72 years.
