Established by the US Constitution, the US Census Bureau is required to conduct a count of every person in the United States, including North Carolina. Everyone must be counted no matter their age, residence status or location.
2020 Census information is available now from both the NC Complete Count Commission and the U.S. Census Bureau.
The 2020 Census will be the first US Census to allow internet response. The internet response option will be convenient for many, but over 500,000 households in NC do not have internet access.
There are plans for Census staff to be available locally for 2020 Census questionnaire assistance.
Interested North Carolinians will find county specific census data on the NC Census Data and Visualizations page.
