Your census invitation has been mailed! Expect an envelope with a letter that looks like the image on the left.

However, you do not need this letter with your unique address identifying number to participate in the census.

Just go to my2020census.gov to begin the questionnaire. Listed below are the questions that each person in your household will fill out.

1. In order to collect your address, we first need to know where you will be living on April 1, 2020? Provide your address.


2.  Please provide a complete street address for your residence. Provide the street address you would use to have a package delivered directly to your residence, not a rural route or P.O. Box address used for mailing purposes. A street address is the most helpful for processing your response.

3.  Name and telephone number?

4. Including yourself, how many people will be living or staying at your address?

5. 
Will there be any ADDITIONAL people that you did not already list?

6. On April 1, 2020, will the house, apartment, or mobile home at your address be:
*Owned by you or someone in this household with a mortgage or loan (including home equity loans)?
*Owned by you or someone in this household free and clear (without a mortgage or loan)?
*Rented?

*Occupied without payment of rent?

7. SEX: Male or Female?

8. Date of Birth and Age?

9. Are you 
of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin?

10. What is your race?

11. 
Do you usually, live or stay somewhere else, other than this address?

  • The 2020 Complete Count Census will determine more than just the number of political officials. Fire departments, police officers and children and family services are also determined by our census figures.
  • Over 68% of all families who filled out the 2000 census did not include all children 0 - 5 years of age.
  • While the assimulated data will be available to the public around the end of the year, your personal data, such as name and address will be kept private for over 70-years.
  • The census is mailed from Jacksonville, Florida. Beware of fraudulent mailers.
