The City of Rosemead is excited to partner with the U.S. Census Bureau for the upcoming Census 2020. Together we can ensure a complete, fair, and accurate count on Census Day, April 1, 2020. 

Every ten years, the U.S. Census Bureau is responsible for conducting the nationwide census. An accurate count is the goal of every census, the 2020 Census included. Census data will determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, how $675 billion are spent in planning for roads, schools, healthcare, and other programs. Conducting an accurate count is crucial to our community.
