The U.S. Constitution mandates the country conduct a count of its population every 10 years. The results determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives and are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts. U.S. households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with information on how to respond to the 2020 Census online, by phone or by mail in the middle of March.
