Statewide Call for the County Campaign to Push Census Response

USCensus (June 19, 2020) – It's time to make Kansas count! The week of June 22-28, 2020, is designated as a time to "Call for the Count." This week-long, concentrated campaign will promote self-response to the 2020 Census. Kansans are encouraged to call on neighbors, friends and family to make sure they take part in the critically important, once-a-decade population count.

The Census campaign's goal is to encourage every household and community in Kansas to be counted in the 2020 Census once, only once and in the right place. Census data is used to determine every state's representation in Congress. It also is used to determine how billions of dollars in federal funding will be dispersed. That money is used by communities across Kansas for emergency services, hospitals, health facilities, schools, roads and more.

By now, every Kansas household should have received an invitation to complete the 20202 Census. The time to respond is now. Households can respond online at my2020census.gov, by calling (844) 330-2020 or by mail. Starting in mid-August, Census enumerators will visit households that have not yet responded.
