Nine Days Left to Complete the 2020 Census!
The self-response period for the 2020 Census ends September 30, 2020! Each Georgia resident counted brings approximately $2,300 per year back to our community through both direct and indirect funding. Over the course of the next decade, this is over $23,000 per person.

Help Camden County get its share of the $675 billion in federal funding distributed annually based on Census data.

Census Takers began working in Camden County on August 11, 2020, as part of the U.S. Census Bureau’s Nonresponse Followup (NRFU). Camden County residents are strongly encouraged to cooperate with Census Takers and complete the 2020 Census for their household to ensure Camden County is correctly counted at the State and Federal levels.

Everyone in Camden County counts. And everyone living in your household on April 1st needs to get counted as part of the 2020 Census.Talk to your friends and neighbors to ensure that they are counted too!

An accurate count informs how billions of dollars in federal funding gets distributed annually for:
  • after school activities,
  • emergency management,
  • health clinics,
  • road repairs,
  • senior services,
  • veterans programs, and
  • hundreds of other programs.
