What is the
2020 Census of Guam?
The United States Constitution mandates that a census of the nation’s population be taken every 10 years. The geographic scope of the decennial census covers the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam.
The 2020 Census of Guam will collect the basic counts of the population and number of living quarters, as well as specific demographic, social, economic, and housing characteristics of the island. The primary goal of the 2020 Census of Guam is to count every person once, only once, and in the right place.
