Respond to the 2020 Census and Avoid the Knock!

The 2020 Census is nearing its end and the City of Raleigh’s current response rate of 65.1 percent is still far short of its 82 percent response rate goal. That means that Census employees are knocking on the doors of an estimated 165,000 residents that have not filled out a Census form yet. They will knock up to four times to ensure that every resident is counted. Avoid the knock by filling out your census today!

Responding to the Census helps our community receives its fair share of billions of dollars of funding for vital programs like transportation, schools, healthcare, and housing. By filling out the Census you are ensuring that these vital resources are given the funding they deserve.

You can help yourself and our community by responding now! Responding to the Census is easier than ever: You can complete the census online or by phone at 844-330-2020 until September 30. You can also respond by mail or by phone at 844-339-2020.
