Census 2020 coming soon
Starting March 12, people will receive letters in the mail with instructions on how to complete the 2020 Census, the results of which will be used to inform how funding is distributed for things like schools, affordable housing, hospitals, and public transportation, as well as how many representatives states will have in Congress.
People will have until July 31 to complete the census online, by mail, or over the phone. The census will not ask if respondents are a citizen, and it is illegal for the census to share information with law enforcement or other agencies—all answers are confidential and used only to produce statistics.
King County is partnering with community-based organizations, philanthropies, other governments, and stakeholders across the region to support and promote a fair and accurate 2020 Census. Help us get the word out by learning more about the 2020 Census. Because we all count.
