Be Counted in the 2020 Census

Post Date:02/12/2020

Be counted in the 2020 Census! The Census counts the popular in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). An accurate count is critical for our community, because the census data affects community funding, congressional representation, and more. Participation in the census is also required by law. Your information is kept anonymous and is only used to produce statistics. The U.S. Census Bureau is bound by law to keep your information strictly confidential, and your answers can never be used against you. You can respond to the short Census questionnaire online, by phone, or by email. 

On Thursday, March 5, come join the League of Women Voters of the Austin Area in welcoming the U.S. Census Bureau’s Partnership Specialist, Maria I. Campos, for an Informational Session regarding the 2020 Census. Learn about the new push for online census taking, what to expect in the census, why the census matters for everyone, and have your questions answered about the census process. Be prepared. Be counted! Refreshments will be provided. All ages are welcome to attend.

The U.S. Census Bureau is also recruiting to fill hundreds of thousands of temporary positions across the county to assist with the 2020 Census count. These jobs offer competitive wages and allow you to support your community, fit your own schedule, and be a part of history! Learn more or apply online at 2020census.gov/jobs
