Image of Census 2020The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled -- this week -- that the government can end data collection immediately, blocking a lower court order that extended the deadline until 10/31/20. The new and final deadline is tomorrow, 10/15/20. For those who have not yet completed their questionnaire, this means: 



  • Internet self-response will be available across the nation through October 15, 2020, until 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is 6 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on October 16, 2020.
  • Phone response will be available for its regularly scheduled time on October 15, 2020.
  • Paper responses must be postmarked by October 15, 2020. 
Census workers will continue to knock on doors of non-responsive households through the end of the day on October 15, 2020.

The U.S. Census Bureau is currently updating 2020Census.gov, Census.gov, as well as all external and internal guidance to reflect the schedule update.
