​What to Expect

By now, you should have received an invitation to respond to the 2020 Census. The invitation includes instructions for responding online at 2020census.gov.

If you need help or would like to respond by phone, you can call a toll-free phone number.

Use the Census ID included in your invitation. You can also respond without it by providing your address here.

Areas less likely to respond online will also receive a paper questionnaire that they can return in the mail.

Include everyone you expect to live in your home on April 1.

You can respond online or by phone in one of 13 languages and find assistance in many more. Get info here.
