Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Secretary Dennis Davin has reminded all Pennsylvanians to be a good neighbor and respond to the 2020 Census.
This year marks the 22nd year of the United States Census, and commonwealth residents began receiving invitations to fill out the 2020 Census in the beginning of March. All households should have already received their initial invitation.
Taking time to respond to the 2020 Census now means a Census taker will not need to visit your home later. Beginning May 13, 2020, Census takers will begin a phased restart of on-field operations in the commonwealth by dropping off 2020 Census invitation packets at the front doors of households in areas where the majority of households do not receive mail at their home.
The deadline to respond has been extended from August 14, 2020, to October 31, 2020.
