April 1, 2020 is Census Day!
The 2020 Census will be the first to offer online responding. Beginning in March of 2020, households will receive a mailed invitation to complete the Census online. The Census will be asking about the people in your household as of April 1, 2020. It is important that all households in Wilmette complete the census completely and accurately to ensure that Wilmette and Illinois receive financial resources and congressional representative of our population.
The Census Bureau is hiring for temporary jobs, including census takers, recruiting assistants, office staff, and supervisory staff. If interested, please see the 2020 Census job website at 2020Census.gov.
Please check this webpage as Census day approaches. The Village will be sharing information about local organizations that can assist with Internet access and with getting started with the online Census entry.
If you have questions about the Census or Wilmette’s efforts to promote participation, please contact the Community Development Department by email or call (847) 853-7550.
