2020 Census

Information and events for the ongoing 2020 Census.

The 2020 Census is here! New Hampshire’s participation in the upcoming count of population on April 1, 2020, is of critical importance to determine the number of seats representing our state in the U.S. House of Representatives. But the Census will also provide our communities with information vital for funding and planning by state and local governments. A complete count of the population in 2020 is necessary for drawing accurate boundaries for voting and legislative districts, and communities rely on Census Bureau statistics for information to plan new businesses, schools, roads, hospitals, job training, centers, and senior care needs.
