CALIFORNIA - One Northern California county is encouraging all residents to participate in the nationwide 2020 Census.
Butte County said the 2020 Census will be the first to rely heavily on online resources with the questionnaire being available on the web beginning March 12.
The questionnaire, also available by phone or on paper, is only nine questions and will not include a question about citizenship status.
Required by law, the Census Bureau will protect any information they collect from individuals and businesses.
Census statistics are used in all different ways from community development and emergency preparedness to job creation and infrastructure. They also allocate funding for important community services.
"Each person that responds to the Census is equal to $20,000 over the next 10 years, it is crucial that we make sure every person is counted, and special efforts are made to reach the hard count populations in Butte County, said county supervisor, Debra Lucero.
