What is the 2020 U.S. Census?

Every ten years the federal government is required to count everyone living in the U.S. through a nationwide census. The 2020 Census marks the first time that community members will be able to respond online.

Why is it Important?

April 1, 2020, is National Census Day. Did you know that the City of South San Francisco's population is considered Hard To Count/Least Likely To Respond? That's why it's vitally important that everyone who should be counted IS counted. For every individual counted in South San Francisco, the City will receive up to $1,000 per year in additional federal, state, or county funding. Likewise, for every individual not counted in South San Francisco, the City can lose up to $10,000 per person since the Census takes place only every 10 years.

Who Needs To Be Counted?

EVERYONE living in the United States and five U.S. territories is counted no matter their age, residence location, or citizenship status.

Is My Information Safe?

Yes. Household and individual information provided on the Census 2020 questionnaire is strongly protected by law. The Census Bureau only reports data as statistics and does not share personal information with any other government agencies (FBI, ICE, Welfare, local code enforcement).
