Filling out the census is easy.
You will be asked a few simple questions like your age, the number of children in your
home and your marital status. The U.S. Census Bureau will send you a postcard to
complete the survey online. If you don’t have access to the Internet, you can complete
the census by mail or phone. Call 1-800-923-8282 for assistance.
Your community has a lot to gain.
Each person counted in the census means more money will go to your community for
the next 10 years for things like schools, roads, hospitals and children’s healthcare.
Participating in the census means you are claiming your community’s fair share of
federal money. With 10 million people living in LA County, we have a lot to gain.
Every person counts!
In the past, many communities have been left out of the census. People of color,
immigrants and children are among those most likely to not be counted. These
communities have so much to gain. It’s important for everyone living in the U.S. to be
counted – citizens and non-citizens.
