Census 2020

The 2020 Census has already begun in remote Alaska, but for everyone else the count begins in less than a month. The Census Bureau will start mailing information to households on March 12, and companies can have a tremendous impact by encouraging their employees, customers and the general public to complete their census questionnaires early (in March and April). For households who do not complete their questionnaire themselves, the Census Bureau will start knocking on doors to collect information in May. 

Companies do not need to do this work alone or start from scratch. Below are examples of how companies are supporting the census and materials to help businesses contribute. Want more help? Reach out to jnaylor@readynation.org
