Louisiana Counts: Census 2020

Ways To Respond

There are three ways to respond to the 2020 Census.

By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:

  • Online.
  • By phone.
  • By mail.

In mid-March, households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census.

Special Circumstances

For some people, it's not clear how they should count themselves or the people in their home. These circumstances may include:

  • People who live in more than one place.
  • People who are moving on Census Day (April 1, 2020).
  • People who are born or die on Census Day (April 1, 2020).
  • People experiencing homelessness.
