You matter. Be counted.
#SLCoCounts #YouMatterBeCounted #Census2020
Every ten years, the United States (U.S.) Constitution requires a non-biased, non-political count of the nation's residents. Everyone counts equally, no matter where they live, their income level, or their citizenship/residency status.
Getting an accurate or complete census count is very important. Census data will guide decisions on how billions of dollars annually are distributed to support education, nutrition, social and workforce services for the next decade. The information will also help determine where to build homes and parks, establish new routes for public transit, build roads, prepare for emergencies, and assist businesses in determining where to locate and what types of products and services to provide.
Invitations to respond to the Census will be sent out between March 12-20, 2020, with a reminder letter following up between March 16-24. If no response has been received beyond then, a reminder postcard will be sent March 26-April 3, with a reminder letter and paper questionnaire following April 8-16. A final reminder postcard will be sent between April 20-27 before in-person follow-ups.
Am I in a Census?
- How do I know that the person knocking on my door is a Census employee?
- A Census Bureau employee told me that my household has been selected for an interview for a survey. What should I know?
- What other surveys is the Census Bureau conducting?
- I have more questions about the Census Bureau and its activities in my area
The Census will never ask for:
- Your Social Security number
- Money or donations
- Anything on behalf of a political party
- Your bank or credit card numbers
