Your data is safe! Title 13, signed into a law in 1954, ensures that the Census will not not ask about your immigration or citizenship status, your job, your Social Security or ITIN number. Your responses are private and will never be shared with anyone, including law enforcement or your landlord.
The 2020 Census is around the corner — and it will shape New York City’s future for years to come.
All across the city, New Yorkers are organizing toward a full count in the 2020 Census. Commonpoint Queens is incredibly proud to join this fight with over 150 community-based organizations as a NYC Complete Count Fund awardee. Together with CUNY, Mayor de Blasio and the New York City Council, we will be building awareness about the census, conveying its importance, fighting the spread of mis- and disinformation, and helping to bridge the digital divide that might prevent many New Yorkers from participating in the first online census. Help us ensure that Queens and our neighborhoods get counted.
What is the Census?
Why does the Census matter?
The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for the next ten years for you and your community. This is used to shape funding for after school programs, senior services, Pre-K & day care, housing, health care, transportation, and more.
The results of the census also determine the number of seats New York will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.
Is the Census confidential?
Your information is protected.
Your answers are confidential and cannot be shared with anyone – not DHS, not ICE, not law enforcement.
Your information cannot be traced back to you or used to harm you.
Under Title 13 of the U.S. Code, the Census Bureau cannot release any identifiable information about individuals, households, or businesses. Anyone who violates this law faces severe penalties.

How can I get involved?
Your Neighborhood Organizing Census Committee — or NOCC — is a group of volunteers based in a specific neighborhood working to ensure everyone in the community is counted! NOCCs will help provide an organizational structure for local volunteers to do their own direct outreach to their friends, families, and neighbors, with support from NYC Census 2020. Volunteers will organize teach-ins, phone-banks, and text-banks to get out the count.
