Every 10 years, the federal government is required to count all residents in the United States, citizens and noncitizens alike, through a national census. The next national census is in April 2020. This information gathered is used to make sure everyone is equally represented in our political system and that government resources are allocated fairly.
It is also used to make important decisions about community programs and services, like where to build homes and parks, establish public transit routes, build new roads, and offer language access services.
Everyone is legally required to respond to the U.S. Census. You could be subject to a fine or limited prison term for not responding or providing false answers. However, the U.S. Census Bureau has not historically enforced these penalties.
