Welcome to the 2020 Census!

Everyone Counts
The goal of this census is to count every living person in the U.S. just once and in the right place. We need your help to make sure everyone in Waterford gets counted!

Census Data Are Important!
The U.S. Constitution requires a census every 10 years. The results are used to determine the number of seats each state has in Congress, draw boundaries for voting districts, and determine how more than $675 billion in federal funding is spent in communities each year.

Taking Part is Your Civic Duty

Completing the census is required; it is a way to participate in our democracy and say "I count!"

Your Information is Confidential
Federal law protects your responses. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics and cannot be used against you by any government agency or court.
