The deadline to complete the U.S. Census is Sept. 30. You can complete the census online, by phone or return the paper form, or respond to a census taker at your door. Language assistance is also available.
Taking the Census is safe, it is private and it matters. Residents can still respond via the national website: 2020census.gov 24/7, or by calling 619-695-5657. The 2020 Census updates our needs for schools, healthcare, housing, roads, energy, water and sanitation systems, fire, police and emergency services, recreation, senior and youth programs, and many other public services.
An under-count results in loss to funding and representation for the next 10 years in a community.
