The bureau stresses the importance of responding, reminding the community that the answers impact representation in Congress, and how much funding the state gets for services throughout the next decade.

It's also worth noting, no law enforcement agency (not the DHS, ICE, FBI, or CIA) can access or use your personal information at any time.

If a census worker knocks on your door, they will have a mask on and take social distancing precautions.
