This year, beginning the week of March 16, citizens will be able to complete the U.S. census online.

Every D.C. household will receive a mailed invitation to go online to complete their census form.

The census provides critical data that District agencies, schools, health care providers, business owners, nonprofits, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for our community.

Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding goes to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads and other resources based on census data. The District also uses census data to redraw ward and ANC boundaries every 10 years to ensure equitable representation. Census data is kept safe and confidential and is never shared with any law enforcement agency.
