2020 Census Questionnaire

What questions does the census ask?

The census asks two kinds of questions. First, it asks questions about your home. Then, it asks questions about each person who lives in your home. 

During the 2020 Census, the Census Bureau will never ask you for:

  • Your Social Security number.
  • Money or donations.
  • Anything on behalf of a political party.
  • Your bank or credit card account numbers.
  • Your citizenship.

If someone claiming to be from the Census Bureau contacts you via email or phone and asks you for one of these things, it's a scam, and you should not cooperate. The information obtained through the census is completely confidential. Individual responses are not shared and only used to tabulate numerical data on the overall population.
