The Census is a short questionnaire that you can fill out online, on the phone, or via mail. It’s done once every 10 years to count EVERYONE who lives in the US – that helps the government figure out how much financial aid to give to each state for important things like  education, safe roads, and health care  . It also makes sure we have the right number of representatives representing our state.
Plus, it’s  totally confidential!   Your information is protected by law.
