2020 Census

 

WEBSITE

The U.S. Census Bureau recently unveiled a new version of the 2020 Census website, https://2020census.gove/en

The site differs from previous iterations in that it includes new Statistics in Schools materials, information about the count of young children, revised facts about the 2020 Census, job application information, and other answers to frequently asked questions. It is designed for communities in general and Complete Count Committees in particular, to access quite a lot of information for census awareness efforts.

Another important feature is the “Fighting 2020 Census Rumors” page, https://2020census.gov/en/news-events/rumors.html, which is intended to combat misinformation regarding the next decennial census. The page also promotes a new email, rumors@census.gov, where the public can report false information about the 2020 Census.

FRAUD

Scammers are out and about, posing as census workers. The Census Bureau will never ask for: Your Social Security number, your bank account or credit card numbers, money or donations.
