Perth Amboy residents who have not yet completed the 2020 Census can do so quickly by working with Census takers that have begun visiting households in our City. It is critical that you work with the census worker so that everyone in your household is counted. Our population count and information is how federal funding to our city is determined, so we need to have an accurate count of how many people are in Perth Amboy. Our population count also determines our representation in Congress. If you have not yet done so, we urge you to complete the 2020 Census and make sure you and your family are counted.
The Census workers who come to your home will wear a mask and will practice social distancing and other health and safety protocols. If you want to choose to avoid meeting in person to do the Census, you can choose to quickly respond to the Census online, over the phone or by mail.
