However, the deadline was pushed forward from the end of October to the middle of the month after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration, deciding the White House could cut the Census count short.

Paper responses must be postmarked by October 15. "Every opportunity that we can have to ensure that each and every person in our state gets counted is really important".

The Census count happens once every ten years.

"Things like funding for libraries, funding for hospitals, for schools, for infrastructure like roads", Housel says.

Census advocates across the nation made last-ditch efforts Thursday to get as many households to answer the 2020 census, which has been challenged by a pandemic, natural disasters, court fights and the Trump administration's push to have it end a month earlier than planned.

Also left unanswered is whether the Census Bureau will be able to come up with a methodology for figuring out who who is in the country illegally in order to carry out Trump's directive, which a panel of federal judges in NY ruled was unlawful.

"Delaware will lose money and headcounts", Hall-Long said.

"We implore Californians who have yet to take the Census to fill it out today before midnight".

The 2020 U.S. Census comes to a close on Thursday, Oct, 15, but Staten Islanders still have a few hours to make sure they're counted. Public information officials at the Census Bureau did not address an emailed question about whether DE had exceeded its 2010 enumeration rate. Lupardo says many people had concerns about opening up their doors to census takers during the height of the pandemic. She attributes this to the County's effort to get locals hired to enumerate in their own communities.

"That approach worked", she said.

The City has worked with the University of Wisconsin-Madison to encourage students to fill out the 2020 Census, including partnering with University Housing to ensure that students in dorms receive their correct Census forms.

Susan Housel, Volunteer Collier County Census Committee, says originally it was extended to October 31st.
