Additional Language Resources
Groups across the US are working to translate informational materials as well as Language Guides into languages not covered by the US Census Bureau. We’ve compiled, by language, the materials we’ve found, as well as an Alaska-specific brochure that is a quick factsheet of your rights regarding the 2020 Census.
