Based on continuing assessments of guidance from federal, state and local health authorities, the U.S. Census Bureau is suspending 2020 Census field operations for two additional weeks to April 15, 2020.
The Census Bureau is taking this step to help protect the health and safety of the American public, Census Bureau employees, and everyone who will go through the hiring process for temporary census taker positions.
The Census Bureau continues to evaluate all 2020 Census field operations, and will communicate any further updates as soon as possible.
ABOUT THE 2020 CENSUS
- The 2020 Census is a short questionnaire that asks about who lives in your household as of April 1, 2020.
- The 2020 Census requires counting a diverse and growing population in the United States and the five U.S. territories.
- The 2020 Census is important because it will determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, inform hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade.
- Responding to the 2020 Census is safe and secure. Individual responses are confidential and protected by law.
