1. It’s easy:

The 2020 Census is all about options. You can choose between a quick online survey, a phone call, or a paper form. You can even fill out the Census at the Library (see below). Just ten minutes of your time will make a big difference over the next ten years for you, your family, and our community.

Respond Online
Respond by Telephone
Respond by Mail

NEW! You can complete the Census at the Library! Just ask at the Reference Desk! The library building is open to the public Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (This project was financed by a Census 2020 Outreach Grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Community and Economic Development.)

The 2020 Census is underway and more households across America are responding every day. Make sure that you and your friends and family are included in this once-a-decade count.

2. It’s important:

Participating in the Census helps determine how many books our kids’ schools and libraries can afford, whether our elders can afford heating in the winter, and if there are bus routes where we need them. Here in Montgomery County, with just a 5% undercount in 2020, we could lose over $72,000,000 per year in funding for Montgomery County schools, roads & bridges, Medicaid, SNAP, housing support, Head Start, senior programs, and more!

The Census is a way to get back what you put in. You put a lot into this country, building your community and your family. You pay taxes. The Census determines what you get out for all that you put in… but you have to be counted. And that means filling out your census form.

3. It’s safe:

Your personal information is protected by law. Individual data and personal responses collected by the Census are kept confidential for 72 years.

What about the COVID-19 Pandemic?

The Census is designed for people to respond on their own. That means you can take the 2020 Census right now in the comfort of your own home. Hop online, make a phone call, or fill out the pre-stamped paper form when it arrives in your mail. Starting on August 11 and continuing through September 30, Census takers will interview homes that haven’t responded.

When everyone is counted, our community will get its fair share of federal funding to help keep our people safe and healthy. Health care, education, and emergency services all depend on getting an accurate census count. Help your community by responding to the Census today!
