Here are some quick answers for FAQ’s re: Census 2020:

    • Easy: The census questionnaire is short. Depending on your household, it only takes about 10 minutes to complete.
    • Safe: By law, the Census Bureau cannot share respondents’ answers with anyone, including federal and local law enforcement agencies. Census Bureau workers take an oath to protect the confidentiality of the data. The penalty for unlawful disclosure is a fine up to $250,000 or imprisonment of up to 5 years, or both.
    • Important: Census Data helps determine our political representation and funding for local roads, schools, and community improvement. So many programs are dependent on this source of funding!
