Census 2020 Resources for Oregon Libraries

Learn about the upcoming Census and ways you can promote participation in your community


How can I invite the Census Bureau to give a presentation at my library?

How can my library get 2020 Census promotional materials?

Are respondents required by law to complete their Census form? What if they want to skip a question?

Title 13 of the U.S. Code states that respondents may be fined if they do not complete their Census form. Submitting an incomplete form will increase the likelihood that an enumerator will need to follow-up with a respondent in person.

Who should I contact if my staff or community members have questions about completing the form?

A Census Questionnaire Assistance hotline will be toll-free and available in multiple languages. It will open March 12, 2020.
