The 2020 Census complete count will begin in Goodlettsville in March. The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U. S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. It counts the population in all 50 states and provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.
Participating in the census is required by law. A complete and accurate count is critical for you and Goodlettsville.
March 12-20: You will receive an invitation in the mail to respond to 2020 Census online. (Some households will also receive paper questionnaires.)
April 1st: CENSUS DAY - By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate. When you respond to the census, you’ll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020.
If you haven’t responded yet:
May-July: Census takers will begin visiting homes that haven’t responded to help make sure everyone is counted.
December: The Census Bureau will deliver counts to the President and Congress as required by law.
