Census Day for the 2020 U.S. Census is April 1, 2020
Tempe wants to educate and encourage a full count of those living in the city because the results determine how much federal funding Tempe will get for needs like transportation, housing assistance and more.
The goal of the 2020 Census is to count everyone once, only once and in the right place. The Census Bureau will continue to improve its use of mobile technology, geospatial innovations, and internet self-response. The Census takes place in April 2020.
Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution mandates a population count each decade. So, America gets just one chance every 10 years to conduct the largest mobilization and operation in the United States. The Census requires years of research, planning and development of methods and infrastructure to ensure an accurate and complete count.
The City of Tempe is gearing up to count all residents in the 2020 U.S. Census and now has selected the team of community members who will help guide the effort. The City Council has approved the appointments for volunteer positions on the city’s 2020 U.S. Census Complete Count Committee.
