Moorhead Counts - 2020 CensusMoorhead's 2020 Census Response data.
The Constitution of the Unites States requires a full count of the population every ten years; starting in 1790 the Census Bureau has counted every resident of the United States. Previous censuses would request households to return their census forms by mail or census workers would visit neighborhoods to count remaining households. The 2020 Census has added an online response form to use modern and cost-efficient methods to count everyone once and in the right place.
Why It's Important
The data that is collected by the 2020 Census are critical for states, counties and communities. Minnesota's State Demographer's office has outlined why the census is important and how it can impact Moorhead.
Moorhead developed a Complete Count Committee (CCC) to help educate and reach all of our citizens.
