2020 Census

 

The 2020 Census is still several months away, however, the City of Pico Rivera 2020 Census Committee has already started plans to ensure that residents “Make Pico Rivera Count.” 

 

Your count can mean more federal dollars to the City of Pico Rivera.  It’s important that every person here in the City is accounted for so that we as a City receive the appropriate funding for a variety of programs in the City. 

 

Collectively, the 2020 Census is a count of all persons living in the United States, which is mandated by the U.S. Constitution. The data will determine more than $675 billion per year in federal funding to state and local governments.

 

The 2020 Census questionnaire will be one of the easiest in history with respondents able to fill out the Census questionnaire online.

 

This page will help you with your most frequently asked questions about the 2020 Census.

*****AVOIDING CENSUS FRAUD AND SCAMS***** 

The U.S. Census Bureau is committed to making the 2020 Census quick, easy, and safe for all participants. Here are some tips to help you stay safe.

Avoiding Scams Online

Phishing is a criminal act in which someone tries to get your information by pretending to be an entity that you trust. Phishing emails often direct you to a website that looks real but is fake—and may be infected with malware.

To help protect yourself from phishing and other scams, please remember that the Census Bureau will never ask for:

  • Your Social Security number.
  • Your bank account or credit card numbers.
  • Money or donations.

In addition, the Census Bureau will NOT contact you on behalf of a political party.

Staying Safe at Home

If someone visits your home to collect a response for the 2020 Census, you can do the following to verify their identity:

  • Check to make sure that they have a valid ID badge, with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date.

If you still have questions about their identity, you can call 800-923-8282 to speak with a local Census Bureau representative.

Reporting Suspected Fraud

If you suspect fraud, call 800-923-8282 to speak with a local Census Bureau representative. If it is determined that the visitor who came to your door does not work for the Census Bureau, contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
