IMPORTANCE OF THE 2020 CENSUS
The 2020 Census will count every person living in Orange County, the United States and U.S. territories. The census is conducted every 10 years by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency.
The results determine congressional representation and federal funding for states and communities, including Orange County. Every year, more than $675 billion goes toward hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, housing programs, emergencies and natural disasters from information collected by the census.
By April 1, 2020, Orange County households will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census and residents will have three options to respond - online, phone or by mail. Residents are required by law to participate in the 2020 count. All responses are confidential.

Complete Count Committees are nationwide volunteer committees established by state, local governments and community leaders to increase awareness and motivate residents to respond to the 2020 Census. The Orange County Complete County Committee plays an integral role in ensuring a complete and accurate count of the community. Success of the census depends on community involvement and takes place June 2019 to July 2020.

COMPLETE COUNT COMMITTEE PURPOSE
The committee's purpose is to encourage residents to participate in completing the census. The grassroots effort is informal and monitors progress while promoting census updates and job opportunities. The campaign timeline runs from June 2019 to July 2020.
WHY DOES LOCAL GOVERNMENT HAVE A VESTED INTEREST IN THE CENSUS?
- The census determines how many seats Orange County and Florida has in Congress.
- The U.S. Constitution requires that electoral districts be periodically adjusted or redrawn to account for population shifts.
- Recovery organizations like FEMA rely heavily on data collected by the census to help guide recovery efforts and plan for future emergencies.
ORANGE COUNTY PROGRAMS THAT RECEIVE FUNDING FROM CENSUS COUNTS
La Oficina del Censo de los Estados Unidos lo está haciendo más fácil que nunca para que la gente pueda responderlo.
En los años anteriores, el método principal de responder el Censo era a través de un cuestionario que se recibía por email, se completaba y se devolvía. For the 2020 Census, the internet is a primary method for households to respond. Mail and phone responses are still accepted.
