Web header Georgetown County Counts


The 2020 census is happening now and we need your help.

The census is more than just a population count. It has a huge impact on communities across the nation, including ours. It determines how federal dollars are distributed and what share goes to toward helping residents, schools, hospitals and local governments in our area. It determines how much representation community residents have in Congress, where businesses locate, and so much more.

In short, the census impacts us all every single day. And our community will be affected by the data produced by the 2020 census for the next decade.

That's why it is so incredibly important that each and every person in our county -- regardless of age, residence status or anything else -- participate in the census. If you are here, you matter and you should be counted! It helps you, it helps our community, and it helps our county.

Already completed the census?

If you or someone else in your household has already completed the census, that's great and we thank you! We hope you will consider being an ambassador for the census in your community by joining in the Georgetown County Counts campaign, which launched on May 1.

If you still need to complete the census...

If your household hasn't completed the census yet, it's super easy and only takes a few minutes. The 2020 census can be completed online at, by phone (844-330-2020 for English speakers or 844-468-2020 for Spanish speakers), or by filling out and mailing back the official census form you received.


What if I didn't receive a census form?

Most households should have received an invitation to respond to the 2020 Census in March. But if you didn't receive an invitation, don't worry. You can still participate in the census, and it's still easy to do! To complete it online, just visit the census log-in page and click on the link toward the bottom of that page for those who don't have a census ID number. If you prefer to complete the census by phone, call 844-330-2020 (or 844-468-2020 for Spanish speakers).
