Should I write Jewish or Ashkanazi/Sephardi as my race?

This is a matter of personal preference. Your answer will not impact the funds directed towards your community. Your answer can be as specific or general as you would like. (For example- Russian and Hungarian descent, Or Eastern European). You may also skip the question. In the online questionnaire, if you select a box, but leave the origin fields blank, a message will appear at the top of the screen and the blank field will be highlighted in red.

Why is it important to fill out the 2020 Census?

The 2020 Census results will be used to determine where billions of dollars in federal funding goes. The more people in your community that complete the census, the more funds your schools, roads, and other public services such as medicaid and unemployment insurance receive. To  view the complete list of programs that receive funding based on the census results please click here. Results from the 2020 Census will also determine the number of seats that each state has in Congress.

Will my answers be shared with anyone else?

No. By law, the U.S. Census Bureau can use your responses only to produce statistics. The Census Bureau is not permitted to publicly release your responses in a way that could identify you or your household. Your individual information is completely confidential and protected by law and cannot be shared with any other government agencies, including law enforcement or immigration officials. Federal law (U.S. Code Title 13, Section 9) protects your privacy and keeps your answers safe and secure.

I rent out part of my home. Should I include the boarder or renter on my questionnaire?

If the boarder or renter lives with you and the other members of your home, you should include them on your questionnaire. If the rented portion of your home has a separate address, the boarder or renter should complete their own questionnaire.

Where should individuals that split time between different residences (such as children in split custody, or in Yeshiva) be counted?

Parents and guardians should count children at the address where they live and sleep most of the time. If a child spends an equal amount of time in two or more homes, count the child where they were staying on April 1, 2020.
