The census is a survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau every 10 years. Not only is the census required by the Constitution, but it’s critically important to communities because census data determines how funds are distributed to states, counties and communities.
You can complete the census at home, over the phone or you can come to the library! Both Joliet Public Library locations will have computers available with limited staff assistance to complete the census online. In addition, census workers will be available at specific days and times to provide more personalized help in completing the questionnaire.
