2020 Census Just Around The Corner

The decennial United States Census is coming in April 2020, and residents should expect to give responses as Golden Valley and surrounding communities could be affected by census results.

The United States records a census every 10 years. Results help make decisions that affect people everywhere, like the assignment of US Congressional Districts and the allocation of federal funding to local governments and school districts. Participation in the census is required by federal law.

By April 1, 2020 every home in the country will receive instructions to participate in the 2020 Census. Responses can be given online, by phone, or by mail. The City of Golden Valley is working to ensure all residents are counted in the census.

For more information, contact Planning Manager Jason Zimmerman at 763- 593-8099 or visit the US Census website.
