Who should be counted?
Every person living in your household as of April 1, 2020 should be counted on the census
form, including anyone who does not have a permanent place to live but is staying in your
home on April 1. This includes children and babies born as of April 1 up to senior citizens,
relatives and non-relatives, regardless of immigration status. If someone in your household
spends time in more than one home, they should be counted where they live and sleep
most of the time. College students and members of the military living elsewhere, and
anyone in a nursing home, jail, or detention facility, will be counted where they are living and
should not counted in your household. For more information about special circumstances,
