$13 Billion: Alabama can obtain $13 billion in federal funding used to improve our state’s future. This money means better health care, schools, roads, job opportunities, and more.
Job Security: Alabama could lose the opportunity for economic growth. This would result in fewer new jobs, businesses, investments, and more.

When Will I Complete The Census?
The next census will take place in 2020. Beginning in mid-March, people will receive a notice in the mail to complete the 2020 Census. Once you receive it, you can respond online. In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with households that haven’t responded to the census.
How Can I Respond?
In 2020, for the first time ever, the Census Bureau will accept responses online and by phone. Responding should take less time than it takes to finish your morning coffee - just visit www.census.gov! You can still respond by mail but may need to request a paper form.
