CENSUS 2020

The Census Count was a success for Ventura County and we are proud to say that Camarillo had the second highest response rate at 83.3% of all cities in Ventura County. Ventura County did very well overall, ranking 154th out of 3,215 counties nationwide, and we are proud of our community’s participation in this important event which only occurs every ten years. It was a huge group effort, citywide, with City staff, community partners and individuals working together to make this happen.

Why Should You Complete the 2020 Census?

Every 10 years the U.S. Census Bureau rolls out a survey to collect general data about residents in the country. A California state study has determined that the City of Camarillo is at risk of being undercounted. According to the Ventura County Community Foundation (VCCF), each uncounted person represents an estimated loss of $2,000 annually for 10 years, for a total of $20,000 per uncounted person over the next decade. By ensuring a complete Census count, we will protect federal funding and Congressional representation in Ventura County. The City of Camarillo is working with the VCCF, city and county governments, nonprofit organizations and philanthropic foundations to assist with community outreach efforts.

The 2020 Census count will begin on April 1, 2020! Check out this informational presentation, given by U.S. Census Bureau Partnership Specialist Justine Fischer, at the February 26, 2020 Camarillo City Council Meeting. Watch this Preview of the 2020 Census Video to guide you through, step-by-step, how to take the Census online.
