In Mid-March, Keep an Eye on Your Census Message!

While you may want to participate by filling out the 2020 Mississippi Census, you may also be wondering, “When can I fill it out?” or “How do I fill it out?” Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Keep an eye out for your Census message!

By mid-March, you will receive an invitation to complete the 2020 Mississippi Census online, by phone, or by mail. Whatever method is most convenient for you, that’s the route you should take to fill it out!

When you get your Census message, it’s your time to take action and fill out the Census! The Census is only 10 questions, will take you 10 minutes to complete, and will have a lasting impact for our state for 10 years. Your Census message will contain a 12-digit census ID, which you will enter in order to participate. If you haven’t received your census ID, there’s no need to worry, you’ll still be able to fill out your Census online.

You probably already know what the 2020 Mississippi Census is. However, you may not know exactly what filling out the Census does to help improve our state.  

The Census actually has an incredible impact on the degree of funding our state receives from the federal government for statewide aid. Schools. Health Clinics. Fire Departments. Even roads and highways. The census impacts many different aspects of your community: your response matters! So, the next time you think the Census may not be worth your time to fill out, just remember all the good it does for our state!
