If you are filling out the census for your home, you should count everyone who is living there as of April 1, 2020. This includes related or unrelated individuals who live and sleep at your home most of the time. Please count everyone living in your home. Where there are more people, there are more needs.
Please be sure to count:
If a college student is just living with you temporarily due to the COVID-19 situation, they should be counted where they ordinarily would be living on April 1, 2020.

The goal of the 2020 Census is a complete and accurate count of everyone living in the United States and its five territories. You should count yourself at the place where you are living and sleeping most of the time as of April 1, 2020 (Census Day).

But others—including college students, service members, and people in health care facilities—may have questions about where they should count themselves or how they should respond. Other circumstances can cause confusion as well, such as moving, having multiple residences, having no permanent address, living in a shelter, or living at a hotel or RV park.
