Be Counted!

The 2020 online Census questionnaire is now live, and ready for Santa Cruz County Residents to be counted.  The Census is just nine simple questions and takes just a few minutes to complete.  Each person counted means thousands of dollars in local funding over the next 10 years.  


The Census can be filled out online at www.my2020census.gov or through Questionnaire Assistance Kiosks located at County facilities.  All information is secure and strictly confidential under federal law.  Everyone is encouraged to use the Census ID mailed to them from the US Census Bureau to ensure an accurate count.  


Please include information about all adults and children (including babies) living or located at each address.  All residents, regardless of age, gender, income, economic or housing status, ethnicity, nationality or immigration status can fill out the Census.  Everyone counts!


The 2020 Census is the first in history to rely heavily on online responses and counting everyone is vitally important for Santa Cruz County.  The Census guides more than $675 billion in annual funding nationwide and supports critical local services such as job training, affordable housing, emergency preparedness, school funding, roads, hospitals and much more.  In addition, the Census will also determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and local political representation at all levels of government.
