The 2020 Census Information

On behalf of the U.S. Census Bureau:

The 2020 Census is upon us and there are $675 billion dollars that the government will distribute each year for 10 years based on the 2020 census count.  We want Nebraska communities and schools to receive their fair share of funding for things like roads, health services, parks, and emergency services. 

**Census data determines funding for programs and services like Title 1, special education, school lunches, after school programs, Head Start, and more.

Flyers to share:

  1. Four Ways to Respond
  2. Census 101
  3. Signed letter for educators to understand the importance of the Census
  4. Take home letters (in English and Spanish) to send home with students that explain how the census helps schools.

We also have a web site that you can share with districts -  https://www.census.gov/schools/.  It has lesson plans that teachers can use with students that focus on the census.

Tips for filling out the 2020 Census

  • Count all children who live in your home whether they are related to you or not.
  • If a child's time is evenly divided between two households, count where the child is on Census Day-April 1, 2020.
  • Count children who are living in your home on April 1, 2020, even if they are only staying with you temporarily.
  • Count newborn babies, even if they are still in the hospital on April 1, 2020.
    • When newborn babies and children are not counted, support for programs such as health insurance, hospitals, childcare, food assistance, schools, and early childhood development is impacted

**The U.S. Census Bureau protects your privacy. 

**The law requires the Census Bureau to keep your information confidential, and your responses cannot be used against you.
