Ninety-five percent of households will receive an initial invitation to respond to the 2020 Census in the mail. Depending on how likely your area is to respond online, you’ll receive either an invitation encouraging you to respond online or an invitation along with a paper questionnaire.

In areas where 20 percent or more of the households need Spanish assistance, the invitations will be in both English and Spanish
