Time is Running Out for the 2020 U.S. Census: Make Pasco Count

PASCO COUNTY, Fla.  –  It only takes ten minutes to make Pasco count!  With the final days of the 2020 United States Census fast approaching, about 66 percent of Pasco County residents have responded.  Our goal is 100 percent participation.  For each under-counted person, $946 is lost; which can mean missing out on millions of dollars in federal funding for critical needs within our communities.

The Census is available online at my2020census.gov, over the phone, and by mail, making participation easier than ever.  This nationwide population count comes every ten years, and an accurate count allows Pasco County to be fairly represented congressionally and awarded maximum funding for the places, programs, and services you count on, including:

Census responses are secure, confidential and protected by law – no personal information can be shared with anyone, including other government agencies.  For additional security information, visit the FAQ website.

Pasco County has experienced exceptional growth over the past decade and needs the funding to support the communities and citizens we serve.  Billions of dollars in federal aid is guided by the Census Count.  Ten minutes of your time can help shape the next ten years in your community.
