U.S. Census 2020
U.S. Census Bureau will begin sending out mailers in March of 2020.
The 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. The census provides crucial funding and decision making data to not only the United States, but also to the City of Bixby.
