You will be able to read and rate other participants' responses. Based on those ratings, the most important thoughts will rise to the top. All contributions are anonymous.

It's Safe, It's Easy and It's Important
The 2020 Census is much more than just a headcount. It provides a picture of our community that helps determine where to build new schools, hospitals, and businesses. Responding to the census also helps communities get the funding they need and helps businesses make data-driven decisions that grow the economy.
Census data impacts our daily lives, informing important decisions about funding for services and infrastructure in our community, including health care, senior centers, roads, and political representation. It also helps us see how our communities have changed over time. That's why an accurate count is so important.
Your census responses are safe and secure. The census bureau is required by law to protect all personal information, and it is strictly confidential. Your answers cannot be used against you by any court or governmental agency, including the FBI, CIA, Department of Homeland Security, or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
For the first time, the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online, by phone, and by mail, to ensure the process is secure and convenient for everyone. This new system makes the questionnaire easy to complete.
