March 2020

Based on continuing assessments of guidance from federal, state, and local health authorities, the U.S. Census Bureau is suspending 2020 Census field operations for two additional weeks to April 15. The Census Bureau reports it is taking this step to help protect the health and safety of the American public, Census Bureau employees, and everyone who will go through the hiring process for temporary census-taker positions.

The 2020 Census is still open for self-response online at 2020census.gov, over the phone, and by paper through the mail.

“As the Census Bureau navigates these challenges, it is most important to remember that an accurate Census is essential to fair government representation, equitable funding for schools and students, informed policy making, high quality research, and the social and economic well-being of the entire U.S.,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “It is crucial that we each do our part to ensure the most accurate count possible.”
