Activities for Census 2020 are already starting as we get prepared for Census Day: April 1, 2020.
April 1, 2020, is Census Day. While that is still some time away, activities to prepare for the Census 2020 are already beginning, especially geographic updates that lay the foundation for the Census "enumeration" (count).
The challenge is to conduct a 2020 Census at a lower cost per household (adjusted for inflation) than the 2010 Census by utilizing new technology, while maintaining high-quality results. The U.S. Census Bureau's 2020 Census Operational Plan documents the current design for conducting the 2020 Census.
