What is the 2020 Census?
- The 2020 Census will count every person living in the United States through a short questionnaire. Questions asked consist of: name, gender, age, date of birth, race, ethnicity, relationship of each person in the household, citizenship, whether a person lives or stays somewhere else, and if you are an owner or renter of your residence.
- The U.S. Constitution mandates that everyone living in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the Five U.S. territories must be accounted for every 10 years.
