How Do I Respond to the 2020 Census and What Does it Ask Me?

The 2020 Census will count all people who live in the U.S. The census is a short questionnaire that asks basic information about your household and the people who live in it. Your personal responses are confidential and cannot be shared with other government agencies, including immigration enforcement, police, or housing authorities. The government uses the population count to divide up political representation and to determine where to spend resources.
