2020 Census

You count: The Census is about you!

We encourage everyone — including Habitat for Humanity staff, volunteers, board members and homeowners — to participate in the U.S. Census, which launched in March. Data collected during the census is critical for helping guide how many dollars in federal assistance Oregon will receive over the next 10 years to fund our schools, hospitals, roads and much more. It also determines the number of seats our state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives to lift the voices of Oregonians in Washington D.C.

Why it Matters: The census is the foundation of our democracy. Data collected during the census is critical for helping guide how many dollars in federal assistance Oregon will receive over the next 10 years to fund our schools, hospitals and roads. It also determines the number of seats our state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives to lift the voices of Oregonians in Washington D.C. A complete and accurate census count tells the story of Oregon—who we are and where we are going. From Tillamook to Ontario, Astoria to Klamath Falls, full participation in the upcoming census is vital to the prosperity of our communities. Make yourself count in 2020! About the Census »

When is the Census? Beginning in mid-March of 2020, households across Oregon will receive a mailing from the U.S. Census Bureau asking them to participate in the census. For the first time in history, the decennial census will primarily be conducted online however, every household will still have the option of responding by phone or mail. Each household will be asked to provide information about the people who reside in that household “most of the time” as of April 1, 2020, the official Census Day. Timeline of Events »
