“Just 10 minutes of your time determines the future of our children and local services through the year 2030,” Demographer Brian Engelmann said in a release. “It is important that everyone in each household is counted, including babies born on or before April 1.”
Engelmann added that the Census is confidential.
“The Census Bureau has dedicated and professional staff who are committed to your privacy and getting a complete count of our communities,” Engelmann said. “No information you provide can be used against you, in any way.”
A paper-version of the questionnaire will be sent to households that don’t complete it by early April.
Many local events, including “Census Saturdays!” and the World Census Day have been cancelled, because of the Coronavirus.
The United States Census Bureau is adjusting some procedures, according to a release from the bureau. It might postpone the survey’s completion date, which is set for July 31.
