Census Flyer Alabama mapThe 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire—online, by phone, or by mail. Participating in the census is required by law. A complete and accurate count is critical for you and our community, because the results of the 2020 Census will affect community funding, congressional representation, and more. Additional information may be found at the United States Census 2020 website.
