The census deadline is approaching, make sure you complete your census.

Every 10 years, the federal government is constitutionally required to count every person living in the country, regardless of origin or immigration status. The results of the census will determine how much federal funding is directed to Austin over the next decade as well as the upcoming redistricting process and the allocation of new state and federal representatives.

The last day to complete the 2020 census is Sept. 30. Austinites can complete the census online here, by calling 844-330-2020 or by mailing the questionnaire sent to their household.
