Census 2020 is Here, and it is Online

Make it count. Complete your census today.


Census 2020 is here, and it is online. Make it count! An accurate snapshot means that communities like Davidson receive important funding, services, and business support.

The U.S. Census Bureau is the national organization that conducts the census, and at a more local level MeckCounts 2020 is the local campaign established to ensure that every resident of Mecklenburg County is counted in 2020.

MeckCounts2020 is led by the Mecklenburg County Complete Count Committee, a diverse group of community members working with individuals and organizations across the community to get the word out about the importance of the census. There are complete Count Committees around the state and the country working to do the same in other communities.

It’s quick and easy. The 2020 Census questionnaire will take about 10 minutes to complete, and you can do it while maintaining your social distance.

It’s safe, secure, and confidential. Your information and privacy are protected.

Your response helps to direct billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services.

Results from the 2020 Census will be used to determine the number of seats each state has in Congress and your political representation at all levels of government. In 2010, North Carolina missed getting another seat in Congress by roughly 15,000 people.

 Getting started:

  • You must complete your questionnaire once you begin. If you leave the questionnaire and return later, you will have to start over.
  • Do not use the web browser buttons (back, forward, or close browser). Use the buttons within the questionnaire to navigate.
  • For best results, use the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari. Enable cookies.
