Have you responded to the US Census 2020 yet?

Our state could lose about $16,000 in federal funding over a 10-year period for each resident who isn't counted in the 2020 Census. Read more.

How to respond

This is the first year responding to the census may be done online or by telephone in the comfort, security and safety of your home. This is especially important with current COVID-19 concerns.

This is the website for responding and this is the phone number to call - 844-330-2020 (available daily from 7 am to 2 am EST).


The US Constitution requires every person living in the US be counted regardless of immigration status, age, race, gender or place of birth.

The 2020 census is important to all Greensboro residents because this census count affects how much federal funding our city gets for various programs for the next 10 years.
