 In California, All Kids Count

​You may have seen messages about the 2020 Census. That's because April 1, 2020 is Census Day. The Census happens every 10 years and is the only official population count in the U.S.

When you fill out the Census form and count everyone at your address, you help decide how much money our community will receive for the next 10 years. This includes programs that support your loved ones: schools, child care, medical care, food assistance, housing, and public transportation.

Remember, when it comes to the Census, everyone counts. Count ALL children living at your address. Don't forget to include babies born on or before April 1, 2020, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, foster children, and people not related to you, like a friend and his/her child, if they are living with you on April 1, 2020.

Filling out the Census form for your address is easy. You can respond to the Census online or by phone in English, Spanish, or 11 other languages. You can even do it on your smartphone! Visit 2020census.gov on April 1, 2020.
