City of Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Census 2020 Complete Count Committee

The City of Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Census 2020 Complete Count Committee focuses on ensuring a complete count of people of all ages who live in the city or county in the upcoming federal Census 2020. The Committee will work with all of the various communities in the city and county, as well as groups and associations of all sorts, to form partnerships, identify resources and develop an effective outreach strategy, with a primary focus on hard-to-count populations.

Why is a complete count important?

The United States Constitution requires that every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau count every person in the nation. A complete and accurate count of our population is essential because this count is used to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. The city and county will lose $3,000 per uncounted person per year, which translates to $30,000 for one person over the 10-year census period. The Census count also determines the boundaries and number of representatives allocated to communities in the House of Representatives, the state legislature, and a number of other elected bodies.

COVID-19 Is Not Stopping the Census

The Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Census 2020 Complete Count Committee is working hard during the COVID-19 crisis as the 2020 Census count is moving forward.

As many employees are now teleworking or on leave and at home, there has never been a better time to fill out the 2020 Census questionnaire.

The Albuquerque/Bernalillo County census committee is urging everyone to be counted by getting online, using your smart phone or by filling out a paper questionnaire and mailing it in to be counted.

All residents should remember to count every person in their household, regardless of age.

“The questionnaire only takes a few minutes to fill out,” says Kristina Nelson, Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Census Coordinator. “That few minutes can mean millions of dollars for many programs and services that are used by residents.”

City and county officials urge all residents to come forward and be counted as part of the campaign that happens every 10 years in the United States.

The United States Census is a survey collecting information about residents and their living and family status. The census does not include questions regarding legal residency or citizenship.

Anyone without computer access or requiring help with the Census 2020 questionnaire can call 1-844-330-2020 for assistance.
