The 2020 Census is here!

Once a decade, the United States Census strives to count every person living in the United States. Oakland County, like Michigan, is committed to making sure everyone is counted.

Why is an effective, accurate census so important?

Because census numbers impact everyone in our state. They affect the quality of life for every individual, child and family. They affect businesses and local communities. Our census count determines funding for roads, police, fire, healthcare, education, and so much more.

We need your help in spreading the word that responding to the Census is convenient, confidential and critical to our future in Oakland County and Michigan. Together we can help ensure our state continues to grow, thrive and succeed for the decade and beyond.

Look for your Census mailing starting this March with instructions on how to participate. We are counting on your help to get everyone in Oakland County and Michigan to say, "Count me in."
