The U.S. Census Bureau is now sending reminder notice postcards to an estimated 69 million households that have not yet responded to the 2020 Census. About 53.7% of households across the country have responded since invitations began arriving in mailboxes on March 12. Those households that have not yet responded to the census will receive an in-person visit by a census taker to collect their information later this summer.
Starting April 27-May 9, households will receive another reminder postcard in the mail. Responding now to the 2020 Census minimizes the need for a census taker to visit your home later this year. For more information, visit <2020census.gov>.
