City of Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Census 2020

Information about the City of Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Census 2020.

Stay Informed

The United States Constitution requires that every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau count every person in the nation. A complete and accurate count of our population is essential because this count is used to distribute federal dollars and political representation for the next 10 years. New Mexico receives more than $7.8 billion dollars per year from the federal government. For every person we do not count, we will lose $5,000 per year. This means the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County could lose approximately 33 billion dollars over the course of this decade.

We need your help to make sure every person in our community is counted. In these pages, you will find toolkits and links to information and instructions on how to fill out the census questionnaire to make sure hard-to-count populations are counted.
