Counting everyone living in North Dakota
Census Day, April 1, 2020, is drawing closer. This date initiates the count of all residents in North Dakota at the location in which each person spends most of their time – where they live. This is true for college students living in dormitories or off-campus housing, military men and women living in barracks or off-base housing, individuals currently in prisons, group homes, homeless situations, nursing homes or assisted living facilities, and individuals living in multiple dwellings or individual homes. Article 1, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution dictates the count of residents to occur every ten years, and mid-March through June 2020 is the designated time for all residents to be counted.
