Lancaster County Census Information

Please see below for information regarding the 2020 Census, and Lancaster County’s efforts to ensure that all residents are counted.

The 2020 Census is vitally important for Lancaster County! The census counts every resident in the United States once every ten years, as mandated by the Constitution. Census data provides the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support vital programs impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care, and public policy.

The Lancaster County Complete Count Committee is forming 6 subcommittees to help improve community awareness and ensure an accurate census count. We would like to invite you and others from your organization to participate in the subcommittee of your choosing.

If you want to help but cannot serve on a committee, please consider becoming a Census Partner. Census Partners participate as they are able. Activities may include distributing census-related information via email or social media, hanging census posters, or posting information about the census on organizational websites.  

Please RSVP to census@co.lancaster.pa.us if you are interested in participating in a subcommittee, or in becoming a Census Partner.

Please feel free to forward this information to others who you believe may be interested in assisting with this important, community-wide initiative.
