An official website of the United States government
The .gov means it's official.
Federal government websites always use a .gov or .mil domain. Before sharing sensitive information online, make sure you're on a .gov or .mil site by inspecting your browser's address (or "location") bar.
This site is also protected by an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate that's been signed by the U.S. government. The https: means all transmitted data is encrypted - in other words, any information or browsing history that you provide is transmitted securely.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the Electronic Response Data Transfer (eResponse) template will take on
average 20 minutes to complete, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, and
reviewing the collection of information. Send comments regarding this burden estimate, including suggestions for
reducing this burden, to:

Our secure servers use Hypertext Transfer Protocol over
Secure Socket Layer (HTTPS) to ensure the encrypted transmission
of data between your browser and the U.S. Census Bureau.
This means that instead of sending readable text over the
Internet, both your browser and our servers encode (scramble)
all text using a security key. That way, personal data sent to
your browser and data you send back are extremely difficult to
decode in the unlikely event of interception by an unauthorized party.
As a result of this, your browser must be capable of using the
required encryption protocol and strength in order to connect to our servers.
If you cannot connect to our secure servers, please upgrade to a newer browser.
Third Party Identity Proofing
Our secure servers use a digital certificate (digital ID) issued by
a trusted, third party Certificate Authority (CA) as proof of identity.
The only way to be sure of a web site's authenticity is to view their digital ID.
In this way, you can be assured that you are not being "spoofed" or tricked
by an imposter. The digital ID will contain information such as the name
of the organization that owns the web site, the site's registered internet
name/address, and the name of the Certification Authority under which the
digital ID was issued. The method for viewing a web site's Digital Certificate/ID
varies depending on the web browser. Please see your browser's "Help"
information for instructions on how to verify a web site's identity.
