The 2020 Census is happening now
You can respond online, by phone, or by mail
The 2020 Census asks a few simple questions about you and everyone who is or will be living with you on April 1, 2020. To see an image of the questionnaire and for more information on answering each question, please visit Questions Asked.
An accurate Census count helps to inform and to fund many of the safety-net programs that are being used during the current COVID-19 pandemic. This is one of the many reasons it is so important for everyone to participate.
The good news is that, during this challenging time, we can practice social distancing and self-quarantining, while also making sure that our families and communities in New Jersey are included in the Census.
It’s safe, secure, and confidential. Your information and privacy are protected by law.
You have the option of answering the questionnaire in English or in 12 other languages
