Spread the Word

May 1, 2020

The Census has turned to social media to help gain more responses and to spread awareness about the opportunities at stake. For the first time, participants may fill out the census either online or by phone. New customizable digital activation badges can be shared through all social media channels to show support of the nation’s census. Throughout the weekend of May 1-3 2020, the census will reward those to post about the census using the tags #2020Census and #ShapeYourFuture. To participate, go to the 2020 census website and create your own graphic, meme, video, etc to post through Instagram stories, Facebook, or Twitter. Additionally, those who participate in the Census may also enter a video prize challenge with awards up to $50,000. With the spread of COVID-19, participating in the online survey is crucial in reducing the number of census workers going door to door to ask for information. Participating will ensure an accurate count of people that will affect funding for hospitals, health care clinics, and emergency services. As of now, the national response rate is at 55.6 percent with a response rate of 56.8 percent in California.
