The 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. The 2020 Census counts the population in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands).
Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire—online, by phone, or by mail.
It's also in the Constitution: Article 1, Section 2, mandates that the country conduct a count of its population once every 10 years.
The 2020 Census will mark the 24th time that the country has counted its population since 1790.
