It is EASY : You can respond online, by phone, or by mail. Help and questionnaires are available in many different languages.
It is SAFE : All responses are confidential, and by law, they cannot be shared in a way that identifies a person or a household. Questions about immigration status will NOT be asked.
It is IMPORTANT : Every adult, child and baby living in the United States must be counted, regardless of their age, race, or citizenship status.
