  • April 1, 2020 is Census Day.
  • The number of people who participate in the Census determines the number of seats Pennsylvania gets in the U.S. Congress.

  • Each person in Pennsylvania who participates in the Census provides our state with nearly $21,000 in federal funds for the next 10 years.
  • When people are not counted, Pennsylvania risks a reduction in federal representation and funding.
  • Mid-March “invitations to participate” will be sent to households across America, please read the instructions and respond.
