A new year. A new decade. And in 2020, a new chance to be counted in the United States census.

Every 10 years, the United States is required by the Constitution to count every person living in the U.S. and its territories. The census count determines many important things, such as services for people with disabilities and representation in Congress.

The Census Bureau has learned that some groups are harder to count than others. People with disabilities are one of those groups – so the Census Bureau is taking extra steps this time to make sure the census is accessible and that they reach out to more people.

Disability Rights Texas is proud to partner with the Census Bureau through a grant from the HOGG Foundation for Mental Health to make sure Texans with disabilities are counted.

Learn more about the census and how to make sure you and others are counted with the resources on this page, or by visiting the Census Bureau website at: www.2020census.gov
