    Create your own content

    Want to make your own census content? A team of Creative Ambassadors in Portland, OR, put together a toolkit to guide you. Check it out, post your content in the Creatives for the Count content repository if you want others to use it, or just share it in your own social media channels.

    Remember to strike the right tone given our public health environment. The most important message: it has never been easier to respond to the census on your own, either online, by phone, or by mail, without having to meet a census taker. Responding now will minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up.
