Make sure you are counted

2020 U.S. Census

The 2020 U.S. Census isn't just to gather the current population of the city of Chilton, the state of Wisconsin, or the country and assign the number of representatives we get in government. It helps direct funding for projects like:

  • Create Jobs

  • Provide Housing

  • Building Schools & Hospitals

  • Building and Repairing Highways

  • Grants for Rural Areas

  • Community Development Grants

  • Rural Payment Assistance Payments

  • Water and Waste Disposal System for Rural Communities

Plus it makes sure that our voice is heard in local, state, and federal decisions.

Important Things To Know

  • Personal responses will not be given to any government agency, law enforcement or courts.

  • You do not need to be a United States citizen to answer the census.

Will someone come to my home?

If you do not respond to the 2020 Census either online, phone, or mail a census taker will visit your home to ask you to take the survey.

If you do not answer at home, the census taker take may talk to neighbors.

A census taker cannot share the information gathered with any government agency, law enforcement or courts. They cannot share the information with anyone, but the U.S. Census Bureau.
