The Census is a constitutionally mandated count of every person in the United States, occurring once every ten years. In 2020, respondents can fill out the Census online, over the phone, or by mail. The data collected in the Decennial Census determines the distribution of over $675 billion in federal funding for communities, and re-draws the boundaries of Congressional and state legislative districts.
The City of Hoboken formed a Complete Count Committee (CCC) in Fall 2019, with representation from community organizations, government officials, and educational and cultural institutions. The CCC organizes the City's Census outreach to ensure an accurate count of Hoboken residents. Check back on this page for CCC activities including job fairs, Census events, marketing campaigns, and more in the coming months.
Once your household has received your invitation with a unique household ID from the Census Bureau (mailing begins March 12), you can fill out your Census form anytime, anywhere. Your answers to the Census questionnaire should reflect the "who" and the "where" of your household as it appears on April 1, 2020.
Please note that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, response centers may be closed.
No upcoming events at the moment. Check back soon for updates.
