We Count. Minnesota: 2020 Census Underway

A new collaboration of businesses, governments, non-profits and community groups across the state have formed We Count. Minnesota to support a fair and accurate 2020 Census. Why do we need to count every person in Minnesota?   

The U.S. Census Bureau works to count every person in the United States every 10 years. The count is important as it guides the distribution of billions of dollars to Minnesota and its communities, including programs funded the Older Americans Act, determines political representation for the next decade and provides data that shapes how policymakers will invest resources.

What You Need to Know

By April 1, 2020, everyone in Minnesota will receive an invitation to participate in the Census. You can complete the census for online, by phone or over the mail. The information you provide is confidential and will not be shared with any other person or organization, inside or outside of government.

Tools, Resources, FAQs

We Count. Minnesota has prepared tools, resources, frequently asked questions and more to help people understand the U.S. Census. As you may get questions from residents, clients, patients and staff, we encourage you to visit the We Count. Minnesota website to access the resources.
