The U.S. Census Bureau has released a sample copy of the questionnaire that will be used in the 2020 Census. Requested information on the form includes:

  1. Type of occupancy (own, rent, etc.)
  2. Number of people in the household
  3. Names of people in the household
  4. Demographics (gender, age, race) of people in the household

The sample is in both English and Spanish. The box at the top of the form provides clear instructions about how to fill out the form and who to include. The print form allows up to 10 people to be included, however, larger households can fill out the form online or by phone.

The official form will not be mailed out for households to complete until March 12, 2020.

Until then, the document can be used to assist local organizations and leaders in preparing communities to participate in the Census. Take a look so your organization can anticipate the questions or concerns your community will have. You can download the form on the Census Bureau website here.
