2020 Census Self-Response Phase Extended

In response to COVID-19 concerns, the Census Bureau has extended the window to fill out the census form to October 31, 2020. 

Did you know that each person counted in the 2020 Census – including newborns and children - brings in just over $2,000 to the community, every year, for ten years? Now more than ever, a total count of our county’s population is crucial. While Chester County’s overall response rate is good, there are still some areas with lower response rates. If you have already completed the census, help encourage others to do the same! If you have not completed the census, please do so as soon as possible.

There are 3 ways to respond: 

  • Fill out the form online at
  • If you were mailed a paper form, mail it in.
  • Fill out the census by phone at 844-330-2020.

Over the next few months, census workers (known as "enumerators") will visit non-responding households in person, and can help you fill out the form.
