By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding: online, by phone, by mail.
WHAT HAPPENS TO MY INFORMATION?
Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Answers can only be used to produce statistics. They cannot be used against you by any government agency or court in any way—not by the FBI, not by the CIA, not by the DHS, and not by ICE.
The Census isn’t only required by the U.S. Constitution, it’s critical for our state’s future. Census results touch nearly every element of our lives for the next decade, including our roads, schools, and community programs.
RISK OF UNDERCOUNT
An undercount of Arizonans would result in a direct loss of millions of dollars per year to Arizona for critical programs across the state.
AZ Census 2020 also affects Arizona’s representation at every level of government from our cities and towns to Washington, DC. In addition, the lines that determine our political boundaries will be set based on the results of the 2020 census.
Arizona has historically seen underrepresented counts for young children, multi-family housing residents, military families, non-native English speakers, low-income residents, minorities and rural residents.
