Census 2020: Planning for Your Response--Port Arthur Citizens in the Military

A Full 2020 Census Count of Military Service Members and Families Is Important to Their Communities

For cities and states across the country, active duty military, veterans and their families are an important part of community life — whether they live on base, in nearby towns or are deployed or stationed overseas. 

But military families may not realize just how important they are when it comes to the 2020 Census. They should know that the 2020 Census will have an impact on their communities’ political representation and billions of dollars in funding annually for the next 10 years.

How Military Members Respond to the 2020 Census

Most military households are responsible for responding to the 2020 Census on their own if they are stationed or living in the United States. People will be counted where they live and sleep most of the time as of April 1, 2020 (Census Day). Remember to count everyone who lives in your household, including young children, newborns and any relatives or others.

You will be counted in a military barracks in the United States if that’s where you’re staying on April 1, 2020. A military point of contact, sworn to protect your privacy, will distribute individual questionnaires, collect them when complete and return them to the Census Bureau. This is similar to how people living in other group quarter facilities such as college/university student housing respond as part of the Group Quarters data collection. 

The same procedure applies if you are on a military vessel with a homeport in the United States. You do not have to fill out a questionnaire if deployed or on a military vessel with a homeport outside the United States on Census Day. The DOD will provide the Census Bureau administrative data for you and family living with you overseas as of April 1.Military Service Members and Family Count
