The 2020 CENSUS
CSTO strongly believes that all MA residents deserve to be and should be counted in the 2020
Census. The Census is a survey of the United States population that helps distribute critical resources
and funding to Massachusetts. Completing the Census is safe, easy, quick, and a
civic obligation. The Census generally takes 15 minutes to complete!
To support the Castle Square community, CSTO has established a Census Access Hotline (617-804-6026) where residents
can call and receive support over the phone.
