Did you know that U.S. Census Bureau data helps shape many different aspects of Harnett County? Each year, the results help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities. It's also mandated by the Constitution: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.
By April 1, 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. This year, you’ll have three options for responding: online, by phone, or by mail. Harnett County plans to help communicate Census 2020 information to our citizens. You can visit this webpage throughout the year to stay up-to-date on the latest Census news.
Over the next year, the U.S. Census Bureau will be conducting more than 100 surveys of households and businesses across the nation. Official Census representatives may come to your house and business. Any representative will have credentials and will not ask to come in your home to complete the survey. You can check out the list of surveys at the U.S. Census Bureau Survey webpage.
