Census deadline temporarily extended...have you been counted?

The 2020 Census deadline has been temporarily extended into October. It may be extended as far as Oct. 31 or perhaps sooner. But you do have a few more days. It's more important than ever that you submit your Census response as soon as possible.

If you’ve completed yours, please remind your neighbors to help ensure that everyone in Lakewood, including children, is counted.

We’re aiming to make Lakewood #1 in census response in our region! We're at an estimated 78% response rate now. Let's improve on that, Lakewood!

You can check Lakewood’s current response rate at Let's make sure everyone counts!

Census takers with valid U.S. Department of Commerce ID badges carrying Census Bureau bags will be visiting homes that haven’t yet responded to the 2020 Census. Find out what to expect.

It’s not too late to respond online, and it only takes a few minutes to complete. See the questions the Census will ask.
