2020 Census

The census is mandated by the Constitution to count everyone in the United States every ten years. The census count helps determine how much representation we have in Congress and sets federal funding levels that affect schools, roads, and hospitals. That's why it is critical to get a complete and accurate count.

We all have a role to play in making sure all New Mexicans get counted so we can receive our fair share of federal funding. You can make a major difference for New Mexico by responding to the 2020 Census if you haven't already. You can respond online at my2020census.gov, by phone at (844) 330-2020, or by mail using official Census Bureau mailings. Learn more about how to respond to the 2020 Census by visiting the U.S. Census Bureau website.
