Your answers are secure and confidential, and the Census Bureau is committed to keeping your information private and safe. Since the census can be completed in about 10 minutes, we encourage everyone to get familiar with all nine questions. The official census will be available in the spring of 2020 for you to complete securely online, by mail or phone. As you can see, the census will NOT ask you about your citizenship or immigration status or things like income, education level or Social Security number, and most people share more information on social media than they will on the 2020 census.

Here’s what you’ll see on the 2020 census.
