It's safe, secure, and confidential. Your information and privacy are protected. It's economical for both the Census and taxpayers. It's green (save the trees!) and it's user friendly - there are help screens and the ability to review your answers.
Don't have access to a computer or the internet? Don't worry - there are three other ways to complete the Census and there will also be internet access points around Williams County when it comes time to fill it out.
The Census Bureau will take your information question by question from the convenience of your phone from any location.

4. In-person Interview
If you choose to not self-respond, then a Census Bureau worker (enumerator) will visit your residence to interview you in person.
