Your identity remains anonymous. Any personal information you provide on the census form is protected by law and cannot be shared with anyone or any other federal agency. Regardless of your immigration status, the information cannot be used against you or to invade the privacy of you or any members of your family.

 

The Census is important. The Census is important because it helps to decide how much federal money our schools will get over the next ten years, and how much money our state will get for our parks, neighborhood improvements, public health, transportation, and many other programs and services. 


The Census is safe. All the

data collected through the census is protected under Title 13 of the U.S. Code. Records are confidential for 72 years by law. All U.S. Census Bureau employees swear a lifetime oath to protect respondent informa

tion. The U.S. Census will never share a respondent’s personal information with other government agencies. Data is only released in summary tables; no individual records are released. The penalty for wrongful disclosure is up to 5 years imprisonment and/or a fine of $250,000.


What do you need to do? Complete the short and easy form online. If you don’t have a computer at home, you can use your child’s Chromebook, one at the San Gabriel Public Library or at a

location in your community clearly identified as the Census Questionnaire Assistance Center.


Your kids count, so make sure to count them when you fill out the census form in Spring 2020!
