Be counted! Respond to the U.S. Census

Census sign

The City of Jackson is reminding residents to be counted in the 2020 Census. 

If you haven’t completed the Census yet, you should know the deadline is Saturday, Oct. 31. Thankfully, this is something you and your family can do from the safety of your home.

Your Census response helps determine the amount of funding Jackson will receive over the next 10 years. The federal government provides funding for services like education, health care, roads, parks and much more based on our census responses. Right now, in parts of Jackson, there is a 50 percent response rate, which means only half of some neighborhoods are being counted.

Filling out the Census is easy and takes less than 10 minutes. You can use your smartphone or computer to submit your Census form online by going to or calling 844-330-2020. You can also respond by mail using the forms that were sent to your home. The details you provide are confidential, and cannot be used against you by any government agency or court. 

Thank you for representing Jackson in the 2020 Census, and making our City a great place to live.
