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.

Between March 12 and March 20 most households in the U.S. will receive their first invitation, a letter containing instructions for completing the Census online or by phone. In early April, the Census will reach out to those who have not already responded with additional reminder letters and an option to respond using a paper form. At the end of May, census takers will beginning visiting households that have not responded online, by phone, or by mail.
The self-response period will remain open until October 31, 2020.
