2020 Census Coming Soon to Oklahoma

The 2020 Census is set to open Thursday, March 12.

Taken every decade, the Census counts every person living in the United States, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. It is important to be counted in the Census because state and national legislative seats and resources are allocated based on population. It is estimated that for each household that does not complete the Census survey, their community stands to lose approximately $1,675 in local federal funding per person, per year, for 10 years.

This year, the Census is going digital. Starting March 12, fliers will be mailed with instructions for completing the Census online. If an online response is not submitted, a paper form will be mailed. Census takers will begin visiting homes that have not responded to help ensure everyone is counted.

City-specific information is listed below.
