How is CSB and SJU Counting Me?

 If you lived on campus for the 2019-2020 school year, you have been counted. That means, when your family fills out their form, they do not need to add you into their response. Residence is determined by where you are located 51% of the time without taking the pandemic into account. If you lived off campus for the 2019-2020 school year, report where you lived prior to relocation. 

What Does the Census Look Like?

The Census Bureau offers a great example of what the physical Census form looks like, as well as an explanation and reason for each question. https://2020census.gov/en/about-questions.html
