Making Sense of the Census
Hi, I’m Julie Menin, Census
Director for New York City.
The 2020 Census is almost
here, and we need every New
Yorker counted. Here’s what YOU
need to know.
The 2020 Census goes live on
March 12th, and it’s easier than
ever to participate. You will be
able to respond online, over the
phone in 13 languages, or by mail.
It’s only about 10 questions, and it
only takes a few minutes.
The census is for everyone, so
make sure that everyone in your
household is counted. That includes
newborns, seniors, people
who aren’t on the lease, and undocumented
So why get counted?
The census determines our
federal funding for vital programs
like education, housing,
and infrastructure. It also determines
how many seats we get
in Congress, and the data it produces
will shape our communities
for the next decade.
Finally, the census is safe. By
law, all your personal information
is confidential. The Census
Bureau cannot share it with anyone
– not your landlord, the police,
or even other government
