YES. Everyone counts. The 2020 Census counts everyone living in the country, including non-citizens. Learn more about who should be counted when you complete the 2020 Census.
NO. The law prevents the Census Bureau from sharing your information with law enforcement. Your answers cannot be used to impact your eligibility for government benefits. Your answers are only used to create statistics about our country. The Census Bureau is bound by Title 13 of the U.S. Code to protect your personal information and keep it strictly confidential. That’s every answer, to every question.
NO. The 2020 Census will be available online, by phone, and by mail. Online and phone responses can be completed in 13 languages (English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Tagalog, Polish, French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese, and Japanese). A paper form will be mailed to every house that hasn’t responded already when we send our fourth mail piece out.
YES. The 2020 Census is vital for communities across the United States. Your response shapes decisions about how public funds are spent for things like schools, fire and emergency services, and health care clinics for your community—as well as your congressional representation.
Will the Census Bureau Hire Non-Citizens To Work on the 2020 Census?
Job applicants must be U.S. citizens and complete a background check. The Census Bureau does not hire anyone who is in the country illegally.
