The purpose of the 2020 Island Areas Censuses is to enumerate all residents of American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI); process and tabulate the collected data; and disseminate data products to the public.

The Census Bureau conducts the IAC through a contract agreement with the local governments of American Samoa, CNMI, Guam, and the USVI. The Census Bureau provides the materials and guidance to the local governments, who are then responsible for conducting the data collection operations as well as recruiting, hiring, and training the entire staff for the operation. After data collection, all materials are delivered to the National Processing Center (NPC) for data capture, as well as subsequent coding of responses, and editing of data for eventual data dissemination.
