Somerset County Residents asked to Respond to US Census

In mid-March of 2020, the US Census will become available to Somerset County households for response.

What is the Census? As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, the census is a once-every-decade count of everyone living in the country. When we know how many people live in your community, organizations, and businesses are better equipped to evaluate the services and programs needed, such as clinics, schools, and roads. It also determines how seats in Congress are distributed among the 50 states.

In March of 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau will send every household an invitation to complete a simple questionnaire about who lives at your address on April 1st. You will have the opportunity to respond online, by phone, or by mail, and federal law keeps those responses safe and secure.
