Census 2020 Continues

April 8, 2020

Last month, households across the country started to receive an invitation to complete the 2020 Census, which determines how many people are living in the United States. Data from the census provide the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to communities across the country to support vital programs – impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.

They are also used to redraw the boundaries of congressional and state legislative districts and accurately determine the number of congressional seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Governor Ige is committed to ensuring that everyone in Hawaii is counted and has approved the use of state time and resources to fill out your census form. If you’ve not done so already, please go to https://my2020census.gov/ to fill out your census form online. The entire process takes between 15-20 minutes. You can also fill out your census form over the phone by calling 1-844-330-2020 toll-free. The deadline to complete the Census is April 20, 2020. 

Due to COVID-19, many households in Hawaii who receive their mail via a Post Office Box have not yet received their invitation to respond to the census. They can still respond online or over the phone using their address instead of the invitation code.

The Hawaii Government Complete Count Committee has created a Guide to the 2020 Census to help answer questions you may have about the 2020 Census. Please view the guide at http://census.hawaii.gov/census_2020/guide/.
