Will my answers be private?


Whether you answer the census online, respond by phone, or mail your completed form, your personal information is safe, secure, and protected by law. Your answers will be combined with others to produce statistics, which help inform government and business planning. Your census response cannot be used against you in any way—not by your landlord, local police, DHS, or ICE. There are no exceptions.
