 Any person residing in Florida on April 1 needs to be counted in Florida! The 2020 Census is happening NOW and you should have received your 12-Digit Census ID in the mail.

Please visit 
https://my2020census.gov/ as soon as possible if you have not done so already. Once you are on the census website click the blue "Start Questionnaire" button. If you have not received, or cannot find, your 12-Digit Census ID, there is a link to recover it on the “Start Questionnaire” screen under the blue “login” button. It says "If you do not have a Census ID, click here”.

It is very important that you fill out the Census ASAP as this will affect how much federal funding Florida (& Palm Beach County) receives for various programs.”

Every ten years, the U.S. Census Bureau counts America’s population and uses the data to distribute $675 billion of federal funding to states & communities each year. These are funds are used by the Town of Palm Beach to provide services to all of our residents. 

Participating in Census 2020 will be private, safe, easy & it will be very important to respond this year. The Census affects people of ALL ages, races, culture & ethnicity, regardless of citizenship. 

Taking part is your civic duty – completing the census is mandatory for everyone living in the United States. Every person that is NOT counted equates to less funding received to provide services to the community.

It is important to know:

  • EVERYONE COUNTS
    the census counts every person living in the U.S. once, only once, and in the right place
  • IT’S IN THE CONSTITUTION
    the U.S. Constitution mandates that everyone in the country be counted every 10 years
  • IT’S ABOUT FAIR REPRESENTATION
    the results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets
  • IT’S ABOUT REDISTRICTING
    state officials redraw the boundaries of the congressional and state legislative districts in their states to account for population shifts
  • IT’S ABOUT $675 BILLION
    the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on census data. That money is spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs
