Starting in mid-March, every resident in the U.S. will receive a letter to complete the census, addressed to the current resident. Depending on location, some residents will receive instructions to complete the census online and others will receive a paper form to complete. The U.S. Census Bureau will follow up either in person or by mail if the form is not received by May.
Online: Anyone can complete their census online.
In-Person: You can also fill out the census at public internet sites in public libraries, community centers, and other agencies. Visit detroitmi.gov/census to learn more.
By Mail: If you have a paper form you should complete and return the census as soon as possible.
