Welcome to the Census 2020 Library Guide! Interested in how the Census works and why it’s important? Unsure if you’re counted or if your information is safe? Look no further! We’ve compiled all the information, resources, and everything in between that may be helpful to learn more about the Census to ensure our community is counted.
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.
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
