2016 Census Test Harris County

April 20, 2016

CensusBureau-d2ed1247The U.S. Census Bureau is researching modern and cost-efficient methods for the population to exercise its civic obligation to be counted in the 2020 Census. Whether through the Internet, telephone, traditional paper questionnaires, or in-person visits, the Census Bureau is committed to making the mandatory once-a-decade headcount quick, easy, and safe for all to participate.

The 2016 Census Test will allow the Census Bureau to study a variety of new methods and advanced technologies that are under consideration for the 2020 Census.

225,000 households throughout Harris County in selected zip codes to include 77036 we selected to take in this 2016 Census Test. By now most, if not all those households would have received forms and 2 postcard reminders in the mail. We encourage all to fill out the form online ASAP, fill out and return by USPS, or use the telephone assistance phone-line (1-866-226-2836)
