How do I respond to the Census?
The 2020 Census is now underway!

If you receive your mail via PO Box, a Census Worker will visit your home to drop off Census materials in mid-June. You can still complete the Census online or by phone before the Census Worker arrives if you have a physical address.

If you live in a "group quarters," such as a correctional facility, nursing home, or college dorm, a Census worker will work with the administration of your facility to get a complete count. These operations begin in February 2020.

1. Online at

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.

2. Phone: 1-844-330-2020

The Census Bureau will take your information question by question from the convenience of your phone from any location from 6 am to 1 am CT, 7 days a week. For additional language options, visit the Census Bureau website.

3. Mail using the paper form

Paper forms will be mailed to residences that have not completed the Census by mid-April. If you are a P.O. Box holder, then a Census Worker will bring you a paper form to return by mail in mid-June. 

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.
