Get Ready to Be Counted
Every 10 years the federal government is mandated by the U.S. Constitution to count all persons living in the United States. 2020 is a Census year.
A Census undercount for a region could result in the loss of precious dollars for public services for a decade. From schools, to transportation, to representation in Congress, our participation will shape the future of National City and the San Diego region for the next 10 years.
Starting in mid-March 2020, each household will begin to receive correspondence in the mail from the U.S. Census Bureau informing them of the options for filling out the Census questionnaire, including online, by phone, or by a requested paper form.
Be counted in 2020 and help ensure our community receives crucial funding by participating in the U.S. census.
