​What to Expect

By April 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the census. The process is quick and easy. You'll then have three options to respond:

  • Online (for the first time!)
  • By phone
  • By mail

If you are filling out the census for your household, you should count anyone who is living there as of April 1, 2020. This includes anyone who is living and sleeping there most of the time.
