We are excited to announce that we are partnering with the U.S. Census Bureau to support the 2020 Census. As a partner, we will be working to make sure our community is accurately represented in the upcoming decennial count.
What is the census?
Every 10 years, the U.S. government counts every person living in the U.S., through the census. The 2020 Census counts the population 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).
Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire about your household and the people who live in it—online, by phone, or by mail. Your personal responses are confidential. Help us make sure that everyone in Johnston is counted.
How do I participate?
By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:
- Online (2020census.gov)
- By phone
- By mail
