The United States first online Census will assist Americans to file their 2020 Census with the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus.
With the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus resulting in more Americans staying indoors through a self-quarantine, the United States Census Bureau wants to reassure the country that the 2020 U.S. Census is completely accessible online.
“For the first time, the census is available online at 2020census.gov. Either a computer or smartphone will do. Connected computers are available at public libraries too,” articles such as this one from the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette say. For those who are instructed to work remotely and look to minimize leaving their homes during the spread of this virus, the online option presents the opportunity to participate while practicing social distance. However, those who are still open to other options, worry not: the Census is still available to Mississippians through phone or mail. Whichever method makes you feel most comfortable is the action you should take to participate in filling out the Census.
In times of uncertainty, we want to ensure that there is a safer alternative. We ‘d like to stress how important it is to take the time to fill out your 2020 United States Census to make sure that you and your loved ones are spoken for. The list of questions for the Census is even shorter than ever, with 10 questions taking only 10 minutes or less to complete, having a lasting impact for our state over the next 10 years.
