The decennial census is a population count that is mandated by the U.S. Constitution to take place every 10 years in all 50 states, U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia. This year the census will take place beginning in mid-March. The census survey can be completed by phone, by mail, and online at 2020census.gov from mid-March until June 30, 2020.
