How to Take the Census
A sample copy of the 2020 Census Questionnaire can be found HERE.
Filling out the Census Is Quick Easy and Safe. In 2020, households will have three options to respond.
Online – Respond online using the internet or smartphone by going to my2020census.gov.
Phone – Respond over the telephone by calling the census call center at 1-844-330-2020.
Mail – you can fill out the census questionnaire in English or Spanish and mail the form, postage-free, back to the Census Bureau. If you need the form in another language, forms are available on-line in seven different languages. Additional paper questionnaires will not be available from the U.S. Census Bureau.
No Census ID? No Problem.
As many as 20-35% of households across Montana, especially those that are in rural locations or have P.O. boxes, will not receive a Census invitation or material until the Census Bureau restarts their door-to-door operations, which have been delayed due to COVID-19. This does not mean that you should wait to fill out your form, because even if you do not have your 12-digit Census ID you can still fill out your form now online or by phone. Simply, begin your questionnaire and then click the button highlighted below in red or call in your response.
