Let’s Make a Difference Together in Chester County!

Together, we can make a difference in our community by completing the 2020 Census online at https://go.usa.gov/xdKXZ. Your responses will help inform planning and funding decisions for critical public services like health care, infrastructure, and education in our county.

It has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone or by mail—all while practicing social distancing and minimizing the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up.

Help shape the future of America by taking a few minutes to complete the 2020 Census at the link above or by calling 1-844-330-2020
