OU Counts: 2020 Census Now Available
The 2020 Census is here! Taken every decade, the Census counts every person living in the United States, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. This year, the Census is going digital.
College students living away from their parent(s)’ home while attending college (living either on-campus or off-campus), will be counted at the on-campus or off-campus residence where they live and sleep most of the time. In short, students should be counted at their residence in Norman! Students that normally live at school should be counted at school, even if they are temporarily living somewhere else due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
