Moorhead Counts - 2020 Census

Moorhead's 2020 Census Response data.

WeCountMN_logo_RGB_tcm36-377051 The Constitution of the Unites States requires a full count of the population every ten years; starting in 1790 the Census Bureau has counted every resident of the United States.  Previous censuses would request households to return their census forms by mail or census workers would visit neighborhoods to count remaining households.  The 2020 Census has added an online response form to use modern and cost-efficient methods to count everyone once and in the right place.
