US Census 2020: How many will declare Czech ancestry?

The United States will observe the National Census Day on April 1, 2020.


Everyone living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) is required by law to be counted in the US Census 2020.

Thus, the census will include all persons who have a “usual residence” (the place where a person lives and sleeps most of the time) in the United States, without regard to a person’s legal status or citizenship. Only foreign citizens who are visiting the United States on vacation or business on April 1 should not be counted.

US Census Bureau maintains and makes available data concerning different aspects and trends associated with the population and demographics of the United States.

If you look at the following table, you might be surprised that more than 1.5 million people in the US declared Czech ancestry in the past.


Thus, if you are of Czech origin, remember your ancestry on April 1!
