February 3, 2020 2020 Census Information

The 2020 Census Is More Than A Head Count!

  • Your response to the census helps shape many different aspects of Livingston County.
  • From hospitals, schools, even roads and highways, your response helps shape our future.  Your response is critical!

When & How Can You Respond?

  • In March 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the census. You'll then have three options to respond: online, by phone, or by mail.
  • Census Day is April 1, 2020. This is a key date for the 2020 count: When completing the census, you'll note where you and your family are living on April 1.

The 2020 Census directly impacts how much federal funding the State of Michigan will receive over the next decade. Failure to obtain a complete and accurate census count may lead to Michigan losing millions of dollars in federal funding that supports programs that benefit Livingston County residents.

  • Every year, the federal government allocates more than $675 Billion in funding based on census data.
  • Every Michigander not counted costs the state approximately $18,250 over 10 years (based on historical U.S. Census undercount).
  • Census data is used to plan new homes and businesses and improve neighborhoods.
  • Census data is used to determine federal funding for programs such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program for Women, Infants and Children (SNAP/WIC), Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and highway and transportation projects.

For more information, you can visit the Livingston County 2020 census page or the US Government's Census 2020 website.
