Census 2020

Help Shape Our Future. Count them.

Shape the next generation. Count them.

What is the Census?
Every 10 years, people across the country and in California fill out the Census in order to have an accurate count of all people in the United States. The Census determines California’s federal funding for important community services that help support our families and fair share of representation in California and Washington D.C.

The next Census is in Spring 2020. Let’s ensure all Californians are counted so we can put those resources to good use here at home!

Why the Census Matters

Census data will determine the allocation of $675 billion in federal funds to:
✔ Improve local schools
✔ Enhance streets and roads
✔ Build affordable housing
✔ Fund childcare and social assistance programs

The 2020 Census will ensure the health and wellness of our families and neighborhoods. By filling out the form, your data helps:
✔ Determine where new hospitals are built
✔ Improve health services
✔ Increase jobs
✔ Create business opportunities

The 2020 Census will determine the number of representatives California has in the U.S. House of Representatives and the number of votes we have in the Electoral College. It will also be used to redraw State Assembly and Senate boundaries.

Handouts and Flyers


Information collected during the 2020 Census can’t be shared or used against you in any way. Your information is only used to generate statistics. It will not be shared with immigration or law enforcement agencies, and it cannot be used to determine your eligibility for government benefits.

The Census Bureau Will Never Ask You For the Following:
  • Your Social Security number
  • Money or donations
  • Anything on behalf of a political party
  • Your bank or credit card account numbers
If someone claiming to be from the Census Bureau asks you for one of these things, it's a scam, and you should not cooperate. For more information, visit Avoiding Fraud and Scams.

Reporting Suspected Fraud
If you suspect fraud, call 800-923-8282 to speak with a local Census Bureau representative. If it is determined that the visitor who came to your door does not work for the Census Bureau, contact your local police department.
