#DéjateContar / #MakeItCount

Your participation in the census is confidential.

The U.S. Census Bureau is obligated by law to protect and maintain your response strictly confidential. It cannot and should not be shared with anyone else. 

Under Title 13 of the United States Code, the Census Bureau may not share any personally identifiable information to you, your home or your company, or even other federal government agencies. The answers you provide are used only to generate statistics. You remain anonymous.

 

When participating in the Census, no one has the right to ask you about your immigration status.

Remember, the information that you provide is confidential and cannot be shared with anyone, not government agencies, businesses, tenants, nor employers. It’s 100% safe!

Filling out the Census is important because by filling it out with the information of everyone in your household you can…

Determine how millions of dollars in federal funds are distributed among states and communities every year.

Determine the number of representatives in Congress your state gets.

Shape health clinics, fire stations, schools, roads, public transportation, and other aspects of your community.

By completing the Census you will get the necessary funds allocated to meet the needs of your community.
