Your Response Matters.
Health clinics. Fire and Police departments. Schools.
Housing programs. Even roads and highways.
The census can shape many different aspects of your
community. Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal
funding flow into states and communities each year.
How To Be Involved
The 2020 Census is more than a count. It's an opportunity—to
get involved and to help shape the future of your community. Everyone can play
a role. The Census Bureau needs your help to raise awareness about the 2020
Census and the importance of an accurate count. In an effort to help raise
awareness, the City of Lebanon created a complete count committee made up of 15
different organizations to share the importance of being counted. If you
would like to get involved, please contact the Community & Economic
Development Office at 717-228-4487 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ways To Respond
When you receive an invitation to participate in the 2020
Census, there are three ways to respond: online, by phone or by mail.
Responding to the 2020 Census is easy. Examples of questions
that are asked are: how many people are living or staying at your home on April
1, 2020? Whether the home is owned or rented? What is the age of each person in
your home? What is the race of each person in your home? The Census will
never ask for your social security number, money or donations, anything on
behalf of a political party and about your bank or credit card account numbers.
Your personal information is kept confidential. The Census
Bureau is bound by federal law to protect your information, and your data is
used only for statistical purposes. Your responses are compiled with
information from other homes to produce statistics, which never identify your
home or any person in your home.
