The End of 2020 Census Data Collection, Next Steps and a Heartfelt Thanks
Written by: Dr. Steven Dillingham, Director
We completed data collection for the 2020 Census on October 15, 2020. Every decennial census makes history, but this was like no other in living memory. Over the coming days, weeks and months, we will provide periodic updates on our post-processing efforts. We are working hard to deliver complete and accurate state population counts as close to the Dec. 31, 2020, statutory deadline as possible.
