US Census 2020 Every ten years, the federal government conducts a population count of everyone in the U.S. The 2020 Census will begin in mid-March 2020, when households are contact through the mail about completing census forms. Census 2020 will represent the first time in history that people may submit their forms electronically.

In addition to determining the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives, the information collected will determine how federal and state funding is distributed to Tennessee and to the local governments of the City Knoxville, Knox County, and the Town of Farragut.

The 2020 Census is important for you and your community.
