The U.S. Census is a national population count that takes place every 10 years. Our goal is to count all Santa Monica residents, regardless of age, race, ethnicity or citizenship status.
Being counted in the 2020 Census will help your family and community. An accurate count in the census will mean more money for local schools, hospitals, emergency services, public transportation and roads, and other services we rely on in Santa Monica.
Everyone must participate in the census. Your age, race, immigration status or zip code does not matter. Remember: under current census laws, your responses are kept confidential and can only be used by the government to produce statistics.
You can complete the census safely from your home online at www.my2020census.gov or by phone by calling 844-330-2020. It takes just 10 minutes, and you will be asked simple questions like your age and how many children you have.
Count yourself and your family today! It only takes 10 minutes to stand up and make a difference that will last 10 years.
