Everyone counts in Itasca! 2020 Census

Every 10 years, the United States Census Bureau counts every resident in the United States, as mandated by the Constitution. It counts everyone who lives at your address on April 1st through a questionnaire.  The Village of Itasca has partnered with the U.S. Census Bureau to spread the word about the 2020 Census to help achieve a complete and accurate count of the U.S. – and Itasca – population.

Getting a complete and accurate count in 2020 requires everyone's help. Individuals, businesses, community organizations, schools and others have a role to play.
