The 2020 Census is a count of every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. The count is mandated by the U.S. Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. The 2020 Census will count every person living in the United States regardless of their country of origin or immigration status. Every person residing in your household on April 1, 2020 should be counted. This includes children, newborn babies, grandparents, friends, non-relatives, and anyone else living in your home.
