Census 2020

The U.S. Constitution requires that a nationwide census be conducted every ten years. This year, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has asked UF/IFAS Extension to assist by informing and educating the public.

Why is the Census important?

Population counts are tallied and analyzed to determine what resources a community receives. These numbers drive how many seats a community receives in Congress as well as how much funding it receives for fire departments, health clinics, schools and more, including some of the programs managed by IFAS. Undercounting could result in insufficient resources.   

April 1 is Census Day

When completing the form, please record your address and household occupancy count as of this day. 


UF/IFAS has been asked to raise awareness about the Census in communities across Florida and to encourage participation. The resources below will facilitate those efforts.
