The final day to complete the 2020 Census is September 30, 2020.

The Census takes place every 10 years and is a count of each person in the United States by the United States Census Bureau. It is critical for determining the distribution of federal funding for vital programs and services in education, housing, health care, and more. Data from the Census also determines how many seats Iowa is allocated at the House of Representatives and impacts social services across Black Hawk County.

As of September 23, 2020, the self-response rate for Cedar Falls was 73.5 percent according to The City of Cedar Falls would like to remind the community to complete their form as soon as possible in order for the area to obtain a complete count. The Census can be filled out online at or phone at 844-330-2020.

About the Census

Households received their Census forms by mail in mid-March. Each form contains seven questions. The U.S. Census Bureau is required by law to use Census information strictly for general statistics. Each individual in the household is counted separately regardless of age. College students should count themselves at the on-or-off campus residence where they live and sleep most of the time. Citizens of foreign countries who are living in the United States should be counted in the U.S residence where they live and sleep most of the time.

For questions, please contact Black Hawk County Census at or call (319) 235-0311. Visit to learn more about the importance of the Census nationally or visit the Black Hawk County site at to see how it impacts our county locally.
