The 2020 Census asks a few simple questions about you and everyone who was living with you on April 1, 2020.
The results help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities like ours – funding for school lunches, highways, as well as support for fire fighters, health care, hospitals and clinics, and families in need.
You should respond to the census based on where you usually live.
If you receive an invitation to respond to the 2020 Census at your usual residence (where you live and sleep most of the time), then you should respond to that invitation and provide information about all of the people who live with you.
If you are away from where you usually live when the invitation arrives, you can respond online or by phone by providing the address for your usual residence. You can respond that no one lives at a residence if you know no one usually lives or stays there.
How to respond if you own a seasonal or vacation home:
If you own a seasonal residence and / or you receive an invitation to respond to the 2020 Census at a seasonal or vacation residence (where you do not live and sleep most of the time), and you know that no one else usually lives there, then you can respond online or by phone and answer “no” when asked if you or anyone else is living or staying at that address on April 1, 2020. This will allow us to mark the seasonal residence as vacant so that we do not have to send a census taker to follow up in person.
If you have more than one residence, you can respond for each, letting us know whether anyone usually lives there.
Please be sure to enter the correct address or the unique Census ID for each home. For example, if you own beach houses that you rent out to short-term vacationers, you could respond for each property, indicating that no one usually lives or stays at that address. (Even if the house is rented out the week of April 1, mark “no” if the renters usually live someplace else.)
