How to participate in the 2020 Census
September 30, 2020 is the deadline to submit your census questionnaire. The best way to avoid a visit from a census taker is to fill out your household questionnaire online (2020census.gov).
Area residents are encouraged to respond by mail, online, or by phone (1-844-330-2020). Screenshot or print the code after finishing the five-minute survey and post it to your door to show Census field workers that your household has already been counted.
Census data affects congressional representation, reapportionment, and redistricting. Trillions of federal funding are allocated to state and local governments based on populations. For every person approximately $3,000/year or $30,000 over ten years is distributed to communities across Alaska. Census data matters!
