Component ID: #ti2027852950

The Census Bureau conducts more than 130 surveys each year, including our nation’s largest household survey, the American Community Survey and the largest business survey Annual Retail Trade.

Your participation is important because your answers make a vital difference. When you respond to a survey or census, you are helping your community and the nation. Your answers, combined with others, become the statistics that businesses, governments and people like you use to make informed decisions about education, emergency preparedness, employment, international trade, health, housing, and other important topics.

We encourage you to participate!
