The 2020 Census will include the use of technology (they are trying to move away from paper forms) to obtain a faster and more accurate count. The Census will include online responses for the first time and it will be recommended for most applicants to complete the form online. The online form is expected to take between 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
It is extremely important that everyone be counted. This is how the federal government determines the number of House of Representative seats each state will receive.
