The mission of the US Census 2020 is to count every person living in the US regardless of age, race and citizenship status. On April 1, 2020, every US household should count everyone who lives and sleeps there most of the time. 

Sounds simple, right? But surprisingly, many families don't count newborns, babies or very young children and they should.

Some families count their college students who live away at school as being in their household and they shouldn't. The college and university towns should count them as residents of that town.

Download this quick-glance poster of who the most historically undercounted populations have been. Post it where you work, in your community, at your church, and in businesses you frequent.

Visit this US 2020 Census Web page to learn more about undercounted populations and this City Web page to stay up-to-date on local census-related information.

Count Everyone Once, Only Once, and in the Right Place.
