According to the Census you can help by doing the following:
- Encourage people to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail. Remind them to count everyone living in their home even if they are not related.
- Explain that everyone living in each household, including newborns, older individuals, and people who are not family members, should be counted on the household’s 2020 Census form.
- If people express to you that they are unsure if others in their home completed the 2020 Census and included them, you should advise them to complete the 2020 Census on their own and include everyone living in their household (children, non-relatives, and other families), even if they think others may have already responded. The Census Bureau has processes in place to resolve duplicate submissions.
- Emphasize that the 2020 Census is safe and secure.
