Adults 18 years and older are required to provide a picture identification. Child consent forms are required to be filled out for those between five years old and 17 years old.

What is the American Community Survey?

The American Community Survey is part of the census program. It collects more detailed information on housing, population, and the economy. Data are collected throughout the decade from a sample of the population (about 3 million addresses annually). Participation is mandatory by law.

Are college students counted in the Census?

College students living away from their parental homes are counted at the on-campus or off-campus residence where they live or sleep most of the time. If you live on campus, you will be counted with the help of campus housing officials through the U.S. Census Bureau’s group quarters program. If you live off-campus, you must complete the form on your own.

Do kids count in the Census?

Absolutely! Parents should include all children living in their home – including non-relatives and children with no other place to live, even if they are only living there temporarily. Parents should also include newborns who are still in the hospital. Children who split time between two homes should be counted at the home where they live and sleep most of the time. If the child spends equal amounts of time between two homes, count them where they stayed on April 1.

Are my answers to the Census safe and secure?

Your information is confidential. The Census Bureau collects data for statistical purposes only. They combine your responses with information from other households or businesses to produce statistics, which never identify your household, any person in your household, or business. Title 13 of the U.S. Code protects the confidentiality of all your information; violating this law is a crime with severe penalties. Other federal laws, including the Confidential Statistical Efficiency Act and the Privacy Act, reinforce these protections. The penalty for unlawful disclosure is a fine of up to $250,000, imprisonment of up to five years, or both. It is against the law to disclose or publish names, addresses, Social Security numbers, and telephone numbers.

How can I identify Census scams?

The Census Bureau will never ask for a complete Social Security number, money or donations, anything on behalf of a political party, your bank’s name or credit card numbers. When visiting a home, census workers must:

  • Present an ID badge that contains a photograph, Department of Commerce watermark, and expiration date.
  • Provide supervisor contact information and/or the regional office phone number for verification, if asked.
  • Provide you with a letter from the Director of the U.S. Census Bureau on Census Bureau letterhead
