2020 U.S. Census

Did you know?

The U.S. census will be available online for the first time in 2020. It's one of a few changes coming this year to make participation more accessible to everyone. For people with disabilities, this includes a fully accessible website, options for Braille or large-print guides, sign language interpreters and more.

Census data helps direct more than $800 billion a year in federal funding, including for key programs that support and protect the rights of people with disabilities. For each person not counted in the 2020 census, Greater Cincinnati loses $1,814 per year in federal funding. In 2010, there was a 77% participation rate Hamilton County meaning that 23% of the population was not counted. Due to the undercount in the 2010 census, $34 billion of federal funding was lost during the last decade in Hamilton County.
