Every ten years, the United States Census counts everyone in the United States. Census results are the basis for congressional representation and help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funds is distributed each year to support vital programs in states and communities across the country. These funds shape local health care, housing, education, transportation, employment, and public policy.

From March to May most households in the U.S. received invitations and reminders for completing the Census online, by phone, or using a paper form. Occasionally the Census Bureau makes follow-up calls to clarify self-submitted responses. Calls received from 844.809.7717 are valid. If you are uncomfortable providing survey-related information on the inbound call, you may hang up and dial the number directly. Census team members will locate your file and walk through the clarifying questions.
The revised timeline for household visits to complete surveys for households that have not responded online, by phone, or by mail has not been confirmed.
The self-response period will remain open until October 31, 2020.
