Census 2020
Passaic County invites you to participate in the 2020 Census!

Passaic County is the ninth most populous county in New Jersey with a diverse population. The Passaic County Complete Count Committee is prioritizing hard to count populations (HTCs). Some examples of commonly HTC populations include people experiencing homelessness, historically marginalized groups, young children, and persons with mental or physical disabilities. Want to get involved? Email us at!

Important Dates: 
Between March 12–20, most households will receive a letter requesting to complete the 2020 Census questionnaire online or to respond by phone. Areas that are less likely to respond online will receive a paper questionnaire along with their invitation.

Participants have the option of completing the survey by mail, phone or online. If you do not respond, a census taker from your community will assist you. 

Remember: Your response to the Census survey is for statistical purposes only. Your information is secure and protected by federal law.
