Census workers persist in their work during a time of unprecedented challenge, serving their communities while focusing on public health and safety.
Census workers have helped to count all our communities, which will help direct government funds to public programs and services across the country.
The 2020 Census requires the American public to work together to shape the country's future. Census workers play a key role in this once-every-ten-years count.
A more accurate census count means better quality data. The responses census workers are helping collect will inform policy decisions that shape America for the next decade.
