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.

Fill out the census if you want:

  • better roads and bridges.

  • kids to have 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.

You can respond online, by paper or over the phone – without having to meet with a census taker. This is incredibly important now, as we work to minimize in-person contact to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The census is printed in English and Spanish, accommodations are available for those with visual or hearing impairments, and telephone assistance is available in 13 languages.
