What to do
1. Prepare your information
The census will ask you a few questions:
How many people are living or staying at the address?
Do you own or rent your home?
Your phone number
Your first and last name
Your age and date of birth
Your ethnicity and race
These questions are for the "householder." The householder will fill out census information for all relatives living with them.
2. Do the census online
Do your census survey online from March to August 14, 2020.
What is the census?
When everybody does the census, San Francisco gets our fair share of federal resources. Learn more about the 2020 Census.
The census brings federal funding to San Francisco. That money goes to schools, hospitals, roads, and other social services that make our city a better place to live.
