Time is running out to respond -- Listen to this interview with Ellisa Johnson, Deputy Director U.S. Census Bureau - Chicago.

Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States, creating national awareness of the importance of the census and its valuable statistics.

It counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting education, fire and emergency response services, transportation, employment, housing, health care and public policy.

By April 1, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census.

If you need assistance completing your survey, call the Census Bureau’s Questionnaire Assistance line at 844-334-2020. If you prefer to complete your survey via a hard copy and have not received one yet, one will likely be coming soon. As of April 8, 64 million households across the country that have not responded to the survey yet will receive one in the mail.
