    Tarrant Counts

    How Tarrant County is preparing for the 2020 Census

    The next national Census will be taking place in April 2020.

    Every 10 years, all U.S. residents, regardless of citizenship status, are required to be counted.

    Tarrant County is working with area cities and local partners to encourage everyone, including those who live in hard-to-count areas, to take part.

    Why is it important?

    The Census impacts federal funding, the number of Congressional seats for each state, redistricting, economic development and quality of life.

    But the Census is legally bound not to share your information with other government agencies.

    It will only take about 10 minutes to answer the Census, which can be filled out online.

    The questions include:

    • The number of people at specific residence on April 1, 2020.
    • The type of dwelling.
    • The phone number at the residence.
    • The name, sex, date of birth, origin and race of each person living at the residence.

    It is important to remind residents that the Census will never ask for the following:

    • Personal identification numbers.
    • Credit card/bank account information.
    • Monetary donations.
    • Politically-affiliated contributions.
