Census: The 2020 Census is coming and it’s up to you to be counted and be heard. When you do the Census, you help local schools, hospitals, roads, and social services get a fair share of federal funding and political representation that helps you and all of San Francisco.
In mid-March, homes across the country will begin receiving invitations to complete the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond by phone, by mail, or online at https://my2020census.gov/
