Madison County Proud Census Supporter

The 2020 Census is fast approaching. The Census is much more than just a head count.  Data collected in the census will inform the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds to states and communities each year for things like infrastructure, health care, and food assistance. It’s important that we all respond to shape the future of our communities. 

Be sure to count everyone who lives in your home on your 2020 Census form. This includes babies and young children, who are often missed in the census. Not counting newborn babies and children impacts support for programs such as children’s health insurance, hospitals, child care, food assistance, schools, and early childhood development. It is important to count all the babies and children in your home, even if they aren’t related to you or are only staying with you temporarily. 

Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your 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, DHS, or ICE. 

Beginning in mid-March 2020, you can respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail. Be sure to count everyone living or staying in your home, including newborn babies and young children, even if they aren’t related to you or are only staying with you temporarily. No matter how you respond, your personal information is confidential, is protected by law, and can never be used to identify you. It can never be shared with law enforcement agencies or your property manager.
