On April 1, 2020 the U.S. Census Bureau will be counting all residents living in the United States. In Pennsylvania, we’re committed to working together to make sure all our neighbors are included in the census.
We encourage all Pennsylvanians to learn more about the 2020 Census, your role as a resident, and explore ideas and downloadable materials you can use to help spread the word about the upcoming census.
