Census 101

Every person counts.

Information gathered through the Census is used to decide how the government will distribute more than $675 billion in federal funds. It also determines how many seats each state receives in the House of Representatives. Using Census numbers, state officials will redraw congressional and state legislative districts to account for population shifts.

How Do I Respond By Phone?

Phone numbers for responding to the census via phone are available for several languages on the Census website.

  • The lines are open for English and Spanish assistance 7-days-a-week, 7:00 AM - 2:00 AM EST.
  • All other non-English representatives are available Monday-Friday 8:00 AM - 10:00 PM EST.

How Do I Respond Online?


Under the adjusted operational plan, households will have until September 30th to respond to Census online, by phone, or by mail. Census takers are scheduled to follow-up with non-responding households between August 11 - Sept 30th. Those dates are subject to change.
