By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding: online, by phone, or by mail.
Depending on how likely the area is to respond online, households will receive either an invitation encouraging them to respond online or by phone (about 112 million households) or an invitation along with a paper questionnaire (about 31 million households).
In areas where 20 percent or more of the households need Spanish assistance, the invitations will be in both English and Spanish.
