Today is Census Day!

Every 10 -years the population of the country is counted and the U.S. Census Bureau has three ways for Americans to participate today- National Census Day.  

The data collected by the decennial census are used to determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives. The first U.S. census was in 1790 during the first term of our first president, George Washington. Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson led the effort. The population counted was 3,929,625. Congress used these results to apportion 105 seats among the 15 states. 

Bucks County Commissioner Bob Harvie talked about the importance of a full, accurate count this year for the County’s future well-being in video posted to Facebook. 

Residents can complete the Census online here or complete the official Census Bureau mailings  that was sent out last month. The mailings include detailed information and a Census ID for completing the survey online. 

And for the first time ever completing the Census can be done with a phone call.  To begin, call 844-330-2020, or call the number associated with your preferred language by clicking here

Phone lines are open every day from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. 

The Census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 2.
