​​​U.S. – The U.S. Census Bureau delivered its planned questions for the 2020 Census to Congress, which include age, sex, Hispanic origin, race, relationship, homeownership status, and citizenship status.

By law, the Census Bureau must deliver decennial census questions to Congress two years before Census Day, with the next one occurring April 1, 2020.​

Also included in the submission to Congress are the planned questions for the 2020 American Community Survey—an annual survey that provides key socio-economic and housing statistics about the nation’s rapidly changing population every year.

Data from the census and American Community Survey directly affect how more than $675 billion per year in federal and state funding are allocated to local, state and tribal governments. 

The data are also vital to other planning decisions, such as emergency preparedness and disaster recovery.

Road to the 2020 Census

Conducting the census is a massive undertaking. It requires years of planning and the support of thousands of people. 

Currently, the Census Bureau is conducting the 2018 Census Test in Providence County, Rhode Island.
