Additionally, AARP investigates issues surrounding the 2020 census, the first in U.S. history that will be primarily digital. Given how many government programs will be funded based on the 2020 census maps, it is crucially important that older Americans know their options, participate online or via paper form in the mail and get counted. Find out why the 2020 census matters to you and your community.
