Census 2020 Important Dates

COVID-19 UpdateChanges to 2020 Census operations due to COVID-19

On March 20, the Census Bureau announced it was adapting or delaying some operations to protect the health and safety of staff members and the public, which includes:

  • extending the self-response period through October 31 (from July 31)
  • delaying its in-person Mobile Questionnaire Assistance program until April 13 (from March 30)
  • delaying counts of people experiencing homelessness until May 1 (from April 1)
  • These changes are in addition to the Census Bureau’s earlier announcements that it would suspend 2020 Census field operations until April 1 and adjust operations in response to campus closures to make sure college students are counted.

The Census Bureau still intends to deliver apportionment counts to the White House by December 31, but additional changes are possible as the bureau monitors the COVID-19 situation.
