  US Census 2020 

Participation in the 2020 Census is exceedingly important. The data collected often determines the amount of tax dollars, grant dollars and other distributions at the federal and state level that our county may be eligible to receive. Lewis County will feel the effects of the 2020 census for at least a decade.

Beginning in January, the 2020 Census will begin advertising, while group housing will be counted in February, and individual households will be asked in March to self-report online, over the phone or by paper survey. For those who do not self-report, census workers will be going door to door from May through July.
