Everyone Counts for the 2020 Census
Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau counts each resident in the United States. The next census kicks off on April 1, 2020.
Data collected in the U.S. Census brings the right amount of federal money to your local community for local programs that help you and your neighbors. For every household that doesn’t get counted, we lose $39,000 over a 10-year period.
Count Me In JoCo is Johnson County, Kansas’ awareness campaign to educate residents about the importance of being counted in the 2020 Census, and how to be counted.

The Census Bureau includes a team of cybersecurity experts who monitor and protect all agency technology around the clock. The security of Census Bureau systems is a top priority, and the IT infrastructure is designed to defend against and contain cyberthreats. When you respond to the census, your answers are kept anonymous. They are used only to produce statistics. The U.S. Census Bureau is bound by law to protect your answers and keep them strictly confidential. The law ensures that your private information is never published and that your answers cannot be used against you by any government agency or court. More information is available at these links.
