Dare Counts - Census 2020
The 2020 Census is coming. The census counts all people living in the U.S. and its 5 territories once every 10 years as required by the U.S. Constitution.
Everyone living in Dare County should be counted (even children), as it is vital for our entire community.
A complete and accurate count is vital for the entire community. The basic data it collects helps to shape the future for you, your family, and your neighbors. It informs the allocation of funding for the community as well as determines the number of seats each state gets in Congress. Every person (both citizens and non-citizens) living in Dare County at the time of the Census must complete the survey.
Everyone is affected by this count. If you drive on a road, cross a bridge, have children in school, go to the doctor's office or hospital, require special assistance from federally funded programs, or use any other public service, join us and make the pledge to participate in the 2020 Census.
