Answers to Common Census Questions and Concerns
Why does it MATTER if I am counted?
A complete, fair and accurate Census count drives critical funding, services, and programming at the federal, state and local level. It also impacts how we are represented — an undercount could put Minnesotans at risk for losing our U.S. 8th Congressional District Seat.
What about CITIZENSHIP?
There is no citizenship question on the census. Learn more.
Live in Marcy-Holmes or other off-campus housing?
Fill out the Census form for where you are living and sleeping most of the time on April 1, 2020 - not at your parents house, or where you might be living after April 1, 2020. ONE Census form shall be completed for all individuals living together in the household. For purposes of the Census, a "household" includes ALL individuals who live together in a residence, whether you are related or unrelated.
International student? Yes, you count in Census 2020!
The Census is a count of people - not citizens. College students who are foreign citizens living in the United States are counted in the Census. Fill out the Census form for where you are living and sleeping most of the time in off-campus housing.
Live in a dorm?
You are covered. You will be counted by university student housing.
