The 2020 U.S. Census is here! Households in Norton are encouraged to fill out the census and can do so online, by phone, or by mail. The U.S. Census takes place every 10 years and represents a count of every person living in the U.S. The census is required by the U.S. Constitution and helps influence important decisions throughout the country, including how federal funding is distributed and how congressional seats are apportioned. It also helps provide a snapshot of how communities have changed over time. Visit 2020census.gov for more details. Also, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, please see below image for an updated timeline for filling out the census.
