UPDATE August 2020: The U.S. Census Bureau is ending all counting efforts for the 2020 census on Sept. 30, a month earlier than previously announced. Help your community—respond today because we need you to make Brooklyn Count 100%!
The Census is a count of every person in the United States, and takes place every 10 years. The 2020 Census is now underway—respond online or by phone at (844-330-2020). The Census determines federal funding for education, healthcare, public housing and our parks, as well as our number of representatives in Congress. It’s essential that every New Yorker is counted, and our voices are heard.
