We are All Counting on You: Census 2020

Make your voice heard in the 2020 Census. It’s a safe and secure way to obtain federal funding for our state’s future. This money means better healthcare, schools, roads, job opportunities and more.

Every 10 years, the U.S. Census is sent to every household in the country. The Census is a count of everyone residing in the U.S. The Census counts every person living in Alabama once, only once, and in the right place. It contains 10 simple questions and only takes six minutes to complete.

Students are counted where they spend most of their time, which means that the majority of University of Montevallo students will be counted in our community. Per the Census Bureau’s residence criteria, Montevallo students temporarily living away from campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic should still be counted for the state of Alabama.
