Help make the U.S. Census accurate

To date only about 40% of Wilmot residents have responded to inquiries from the 2020 U.S. Census. Because the census numbers are used, among other purposes, to estimate eligibility for government funding, it is important to get an accurate count of local residents.

Part-time residents of Wilmot

If you live at multiple places throughout the year, count yourself at the address where you live and sleep most of the time. If you split your time evenly between two or more places, count yourself where you were staying on April 1, 2020. However, a census response is required from each and every property.

For any property you own but only use part of the time, follow these instructions:

  1. Visit www.my2020census.gov
  2. Enter the Census ID or address for this secondary property
  3. Enter “0” for the number of people living at this property
  4. Hit Next, and when a “soft error” occurs, click Next again
  5. Select “No” when asked to confirm no person lives at this property
  6. Select primary reason – Seasonal (most likely)
  7. Complete!
