TAKE THE 2020 CENSUS
Malibu still has a very low response rate on the 2020 U.S. Census. As of May 4, Malibu had a 32.1% response rate, compared with Los Angeles County at 53.4%, California at 58% and the US nationwide at 56.8%. The 2020 Census deadline has been extended from the end of July to mid-August due to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now is a great time to take the Census and make sure Malibu gets counted. The US Census is crucial for determining our community's allocation of federal and state funds for public safety, roads, federal stimulus and other vital resources, and our representation in the federal government. You can easily complete the Census online at My2020Census.gov or by phone at 844-330-2020 (844-468-2020 for Spanish).
