Although things are out of sorts around the world, U.S. Census day (which only occurs once every ten years) is still an important date observed nationwide. You can participate in this major Constitutional required event online, by phone, or by mail.
The Census has a fact sheet available online with excellent guidance for college students, and their website includes updates and announcements related to COVID-19 as well. These announcements indicate that although some operations are being delayed and public safety concerns are a top consideration, Census 2020 is still underway today. One of the adjustments is an extension on their typical self-response phase (previously July 31, now August 14th). For more information visit the Census status of current operations page.
Most of all, don’t forget to count yourself for Census 2020! To do so online visit https://2020census.gov/en.html. To learn more about the Census, watch their official video:
