2020 Census Mail Contact Strategies

The U.S. Census Bureau released its mail contact strategies, identifying how different parts of the U.S. will be invited to respond to the 2020 Census.

Beginning in mid-March 2020, almost every household in the U.S. will be invited to respond online, by phone or by mail to the census. About 85 percent of California housing units will receive an invitation to respond online or by phone, according to census data. About 13 percent of California households will receive a paper questionnaire along with an invitation to respond online. Regardless of which invitation they receive, all households that have not yet responded will receive a paper questionnaire by mid-April.
