Getting Ready


Count Me in College Park for the 2020 Census!

The census is a count of everyone who lives in the United States that happens every 10 years. April 1, 2020 is the official Census day but you can respond to the census starting in mid-March online at, over the phone, or by mail. Every household in the U.S. is required to complete a Census questionnaire after receiving a postcard notification from the Census Bureau in March. Your response is safe, easy, and important to the community. Population counts based on census responses determine funding and representation for your community in the following areas: Business Development and Jobs, Health Care Resources, School Funding, Enhanced City Services, and Accurate Legislative Representation.

Everyone that lives in College Park on April 1 should be counted here. Students living on and off campus, foreign students, children and infants, non-English speakers and non-U.S. citizens should all be counted.

Can we count YOU in? Learn more at or contact the City's Department of Planning, Community & Economic Development at 240-487-3538.
