The Census Challenge 2020

The Census Challenge 2020 is here! Salt Lake County, West Valley City, and Salt Lake City have challenged Utah County, Provo City, and Orem City to a Census Challenge! The goal is to increase participation in the 2020 Census. Up to this moment, 68.2% of the Salt Lake County population has completed the Census 2020. Our goal is to raise Salt Lake County’s overall census response up to 73.2% by June 30.

It only takes 10 minutes for your city (or county) to earn bragging rights for the next decade! It does not matter if you are not a citizen; the Census is a count of everyone regardless of immigration status — your voice still counts, and you matter. Your family and community needs you!

Help #SLCo win by filling out the Census 2020 online at,or over the phone at 844-330-2020 and Spanish at 844-468-2020. The census can be completed in 13 languages.

Every 10 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.

You can complete the 2020 Census online, by phone, or by mail when your invitation to respond arrives. Preview the questions asked on the form.

You can complete the online questionnaire in the following languages: English, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified)VietnameseKoreanRussianArabicTagalogPolishFrenchHaitian CreolePortuguese, and Japanese.
