Census 2020

New York is Committed to a Full Count in the 2020 Census

The 2020 Census is Coming Soon - Are You Prepared?

April 1, 2020 is Census Day for the next decennial census; the nation's once-per-decade, constitutionally-mandated count of every American, regardless of their citizenship status. The decennial census is one of the nation's most important programs.

In 2016, more than $880 billion of federal funding was distributed between the states using formulas that were based on census data. New Yorkers' fair share of federal funds for programs essential to health care, education, housing, economic development and transportation, as well as our political representation in Washington, all depends on an accurate and fully-counted census response.

New York State is committed to ensuring a full count of all New Yorkers. The State has dedicated resources and expertise to develop a comprehensive, collaborative and ongoing effort to identify hard-to-count populations and identify the most effective ways to encourage participation in the census.

We will continue to work together - local governments, community agencies, and you, the people of the great state of New York - to make sure every New Yorker is counted in 2020.
