The U.S. Census Bureau will begin inviting households to respond to the 2020 Census around March 12.
April 1 is National Census Day, the preferred deadline for all households to respond to the Census, according to local organizer Tony Matthews, a Seminole County planner and 2020 Census Complete Count Committee coordinator.
After April 27, non-responders will be contacted by a census taker.
“Students, count yourself at your off-campus address even if you go to your parents’ home for school breaks,” Matthews said in a news release. “This also includes international students.”
You can respond online, by phone, or by mail, Matthew said.
“So don’t delay to respond in 2020—everyone counts, it’s easy; it’s safe; it’s in the Constitution; and it’s a civic duty,” he said in a news release. To learn more about the 2020 Census visit 2020census.gov.
