Make sure you get counted
by the U.S. Census

Every 10 years, the United States conducts its Census, an official count of every person in the nation.

It is very important that every resident of the Village gets counted because a variety of funding formulas are tied to population. The districts of elected representatives for local and state offices, as well as Congress, are drawn based on the Census.

Please look for an invitation in the mail to participate in the Census between March 12 and March 20. You may be given the option to respond online. You also will be provided with options for a paper questionnaire or a reply by telephone. Census takers will then go door-to-door in June and July to count people who have not responded.
