Bishop Anthony B. Taylor supports the efforts of the 2020 census to count every person who lives in the United States. Every person living in your home needs to be counted. That includes children and newborn babies, citizens and noncitizens, relatives and nonrelatives and even those staying with you temporarily. 

Census data guides how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year for schools, health care facilities, roads and social services. Your responses to the census are safe and secure. The law requires the U.S. Census Bureau to keep your information confidential and your responses cannot be used against you in any way.

You should have already received Official Census mail with detailed information on how to respond. You can complete it however is easiest for you: online at or by phone (844) 330-2020. If you do not respond, you can expect a questionnaire to be mailed to your house.
