2020 Census: More People Counted = More Funding for L.A. Residents
Did you know that census data helps determine funding for critical services -- like support for small businesses and protections for renters?
By responding to the census, you can help make sure the programs you care about get federal funding. Go to to complete your census form today.
The census happens once every 10 years.
EVERYONE living in the United States is counted. Age, race, immigration status or ZIP code do not matter. Everyone who lives with you counts, including babies and relatives.
Unless more people respond, our communities won't get the funding we need for schools and to help fight the coronavirus.
It only takes 10 minutes to complete the census form safely from your home.
Under federal law, your responses are kept private and won't be shared with your landlord or the government.
Help ensure a vibrant future for Los Angeles residents.

Census Bureau Adapts Operations to Ensure Everyone Is Counted
As the U.S. Census Bureau continues to monitor the impacts COVID-19 has on 2020 Census operations, changes to operations are being deployed to ensure the safety of staff and the public while maximizing the number of households that respond on their own to the 2020 Census.
“We are taking steps and adapting our operations to make sure everyone is counted, while keeping everyone safe,” said Census Bureau Director Dr. Steven Dillingham. “Our commitment to a complete and accurate 2020 Census is absolute. In this challenging environment, we are deploying these tactics to make sure we reach every household in every community. If you haven't responded, the time to respond is now! 
Responding to the 2020 Census online, on paper, by phone, or in person with a census taker, helps secure vital resources for your community."
