The Census Is For Everyone

All Census information is confidential — regardless of your immigration status. There is no Citizenship question in the 2020 Census.
The Census determines what share of federal funding flow into West Hollywood for things like schools, roads, and hospitals. In addition, the census count determines apportionment among the states for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Federal funding to states, generally speaking, is determined based on population counts. Improper accounting of California's population or "undercount" may lead to reduced allocation of resources in the years ahead.

Census data impact our daily lives, informing important decisions about funding for services and infrastructure in your community, including health care, senior centers, jobs, political representation, roads, schools, and businesses. More than $675 billion in federal funding flows back to states and local communities each year based on census data.
Your Participation Matters
The nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO) of California has estimated that during the 1990 Census, California's population was undercounted by 2.7 percent; this undercount likely resulted in California receiving at least $2 billion less in federal funds. There are, however, other impacts beyond reduced financial resources. According to the LAO, the 1990 Census' undercount was severe enough that the State was shortchanged one Congressional seat (Legislative Analyst's Office, 2018).

Where does my information go?
Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics—they cannot be used against you in any way. By law, all responses to U.S. Census Bureau household and business surveys are kept completely confidential.

The law states that the information collected may only be used for statistical purposes and no other purpose.
Will they ask about my immigration status?
No. The Supreme Court struck down the Trump administration's attempt to add a question on citizenship on the Census. Everyone should complete the Census regardless of status.
