- People who do not regularly live at my house are now temporarily living here due to COVID-19. Where should they be counted?
- Is it true that you have to complete the Census in order to receive the “stimulus” checks from the federal government in response to COVID-19?
- What delays are taking place due to COVID-19?
- Will Census Bureau field staff still visit households that haven’t completed the survey for their household by the end of April?
- How will the Census count college students who had to move out early from their college residence facilities due to COVID-19?
Is it true that households have to complete the 2020 Census in order to receive the “stimulus” checks that may be mailed to households by the federal government as a response to the financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic?
No. The two processes are completely separate. The information that you provide concerning your household for the 2020 Census, including whether or not your household responded at all, is kept completely confidential. As a result, the federal government would not be able to condition issuance of these checks on completion of the 2020 Census.
