Fill out the 2020 Census

Every 10 years, the United States conducts a census. This count of U.S. residents helps determine how $675 billion is spent by the federal government and how Pennsylvania is represented in Congress for the next 10 years.

Filling out the census is not just your civic duty, it's required by law, and it's critical if you want:

  • better roads and bridges.
  • kids to have better access to quality schools.
  • better access to restaurants and shops.
  • better public safety.

This year, it will be even easier to make sure you and your family are counted. Respond online, by paper or over the phone. The census will be printed in English and Spanish, accommodations are available for those with visual or hearing impairments, and telephone assistance will be available in 13 languages.

In mid-March, homes should start recieving information about how to complete the census. Visit for more information.
