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.
What to expect in the mail
On or between, you will receive:
An invitation to respond online to the 2020 Census. (Some households will also receive paper questionnaires.)
A reminder letter.
If you have not responded yet:
March 26-April 3
A reminder postcard.
A reminder letter and paper questionnaire.
A final reminder postcard before we follow up in person.
