Take the Census:
It's Quick and Easy, Safe and Secure
A little more than 76 percent of Littleton households have responded to the 2020 Census, and 69.6 percent of Colorado households have responded.

The Secretary of Commerce has announced a new target date of October 31, to conclude 2020 Census self-response and field data collection.

The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for the Littleton community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.

The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts. There is still time, if you have not completed the 2020 Census yet visit 2020Census.org.
