In December of this year the Census Bureau will deliver final numbers to the president and to Congress, as is required by law.
Starting April 16, census workers will convene on colleges, nursing homes, and senior centers to make sure that everyone is counted.
If you choose not to participate by mail or online, census takers will go door to door to try and get an accurate count.
There is still time to fill out the census survey online before Wednesday, or by mailing your survey back in after you receive it.
