The Census Starts Now!

April 1, 2020 is officially Census Day when the country will count every person residing in the US, but you can answer today. Everyone living in the U.S. – regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, or immigration status–are valuable parts of our community who need to be counted. Your data is always 100% safe and secure.

About The Census

The Census is a head count of everyone residing in the United States. It has been mandated by the U.S. Constitution (Article 1, Section 2) since 1790 and occurs every 10 years. The U.S. Constitution instructs that every person living in the United States be counted during the Census. The count determines funding amounts that go directly to your community- $13 billion in 2016 to Colorado alone! 



Participation In The Census

The Census is for everyone and counts people of all ages, races and ethnic groups in order to allocate funds and guide decision-making at local, state and federal levels. Participation is safe, easy, and confidential and is provided in multiple languages. You can participate online via computer, tablet, or phone.




The Complete Count Committee helps to increase awareness and motivate residents to respond to the 2020 Census. The members of the committee will serve as local Census Ambassadors to ensure that all residents of Denver are counted.
