2020 Census

We Count Minnesota. Census 2020The first United States Census was conducted in 1790. Since then, we’ve taken a count every 10 years. Just like our nation and communities, it’s evolved a lot since its original form. This year, the Census will be conducted primarily online.

You’re legally obligated to complete the Census–but even if you weren’t, it’s vitally important to our community and state that every person is counted. Data from the Census is used to determine funding distribution, decide legislative districts, and help companies make decisions about whether to open new businesses. Even if you don’t have a permanent address: fill out the Census with the city, state, and zip code you’re living in on April 1st. That helps ensure that your current community will get the resources it needs to grow and help you flourish.
