Hawai‘i Counts

We want the people of Hawaiʻi to receive their fair share of federal funding, resources and Congressional representation. To achieve this goal, we need everyone living in Hawaiʻi on April 1, 2020 to be counted in the Hawaiʻi Census 2020.

The Census is crucial to shaping the future of Hawaiʻi, as the data will determine how much federal funding state government and local communities will receive for the next decade. The results will affect funding for public schools, student loans for college, special education, Medicaid and Medicare, roads, public housing, food assistance programs, social services, and much more.

Your response helps to ensure that more than $675 billion in federal funds is directed each year to the right places in order to support these many services. Decisions made over the next decade about where to send this money are based on census data. A complete and accurate count is also critical to determine how many representatives each state will have in Congress.

Therefore, being counted is crucial for the future of our communities and our state. Let’s make sure Hawai‘i Counts – encourage your friends, families and neighbors to be counted.

Your Privacy Matters

When you participate in the Census, your privacy is protected. It’s the law.

The law requires the U.S. Census Bureau to keep your information confidential and use your responses only to produce statistics. Also, the Census Bureau cannot publicly release your responses in any way that could identify you.

In other words, your information will never be shared with immigration enforcement agencies such as ICE, law enforcement agencies such as the FBI or police, or any other party to determine your eligibility for government benefits.
