Census While You Wait

Post Date:01/21/2020 4:44 PM

The 2020 Census will be the easiest ever. The U.S. Census Bureau will be introducing new technology in 2020. For the first time, residents will be able to respond online, by phone or by mail.


  • Online - People will receive a mailed postcard with a personal code to enter their information online.
  • Phone - Residents can also call to take the survey.
  • Mail - Paper surveys will be mailed if online submissions are not entered.


Each person counted is worth $3,000 in public services. Essential city services, including police and fire protection as well as roads, parks, hospitals, and schools all depend on an accurate census count. The census begins April 1, 2020. For more information, visit
