Census 2020

In mid-March, households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census.

It’s very important that everyone complete their census questionnaire and return it to the Census Bureau.  Having an accurate and complete census helps Eau Claire in determining Federal and State aids and grants, economic development, housing assistance, transportation improvements, and many other uses.
