Questionnaire Assistance Centers

Questionnaire Assistance Centers are predetermined locations where individuals can fill-out their 2020 Census online and receive assistance from trained staff, if needed. The Minnesota State Demographic Center is collaborating with Minnesota Public Libraries, statewide Complete Count Committees, and other 2020 Census partners to create a network across the state that can provide Minnesotans with the resources and assistance they need to submit their 2020 Census form.
