2020 Census - EVERY MICHGANDER COUNTS!
Once every decade, the U.S. Census works to count every person living in the United States. Every Michigander needs to be counted because census numbers affect everyone in Michigan - including seniors, students, kids, parents, businesses and communities.
Funding for Genesee County is based on results of the 2020 Census.
During Spring parent teacher conferences, computers will be available for families to complete the Census 2020. There are only 9 questions and there are NO questions about citizenship.
You will need the materials mailed to you and the ten-digit User ID to start the survey.
