Every 10 years, the US Census Bureau counts everyone living in the country, regardless of their nationality, citizenship status and living situation. The Census is an opportunity to make sure our communities count, and create a better future for the next generation.

While COVID-19 continues to disrupt our daily lives, NYU is continuing to do its part to encourage Census participation in our community. The outbreak has complicated these efforts, as New Yorkers travel out of the city and are counted elsewhere. But in order to ensure that New York receives its proper federal funding for hospitals, schools, trains, roads, and bridges, it is crucial that New Yorkers do their part to make sure New York achieves an accurate count. You can complete the 2020 Census Questionnaire today either online, over the phone (844-330-2020) or by mail by August 14.

Below are answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the Census with additional instructions tailored to the NYU community, including our students who have left campus due to COVID-19. If you have any questions about the Census, please contact the NYU Office of Government Affairs at government.affairs@nyu.edu or 212-998-2400.
