HOW TO RESPOND
You have several options for how to complete the Census:
Start the online questionnaire now. You can use your Census ID which can be found on one of the items that have been mailed to you, but you don’t need it to complete the Census. See where to look.
To begin, call 844-330-2020, or call the number associated with your preferred language. Phone lines are open every day from 7am to 2am Eastern Time.
Fill out the questionnaire sent to your home and mail it back in the envelope provided. Use blue or black ink. Don’t use pencil. If you lost the return envelope, mail it back to U.S. Census Bureau, National Processing Center, 1201 E 10th Street, Jeffersonville, IN 47132.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOTHING?
If you do not complete the Census, typically a census taker will visit in person to collect your household’s responses starting in May. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, this timeline may change.
