- How should I answer the race question if I am Middle Eastern or North African?
- How do I complete the census form for a second home, cabin or seasonal residence?

Will people who are not United States citizens or legal residents be counted in the Census?
Yes, all people who are living in the U.S., regardless of immigration status or citizenship, should be counted where they live and sleep “most of the time.”
Foreign students living and attending college in the United States should be counted at the on- or off-campus residence where they live and sleep most of the time.
One limited exception is that citizens of foreign countries who are briefly visiting the United States for vacation or business on April 1, 2020 will not be counted.
