2020 Census

Information and events for the ongoing 2020 Census.

The 2020 Census is here! New Hampshire’s participation in the 2020 Census is of critical importance to determine the number of seats representing our state in the U.S. House of Representatives. The 2020 Census will also determine how much funding our communities receive and provide 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.

The New Hampshire Complete Count Committee urges everyone residing in our state who has not yet responded to the 2020 Census to do so today at to help ensure a complete count of the state’s population. Your responses are protected by law, under Title 13 of the U.S. Code, from being shared with anyone, and it is only by counting everyone that New Hampshire will be fully represented at all levels of government, and that our communities will receive their proper share of federal resources. Our mission is to ensure that everyone residing in New Hampshire is counted once, only once, and in the right place.
