Do you need certification of a Census Bureau document? 

What is a Certification?  A certification is the designation by which Census Bureau officials attest to the fact that they have reviewed a copy of a particular table, map, special tabulation, etc., and certify that it is a true and accurate copy of census information.

    • In addition, the Census Bureau currently has two new options for requesting certified Census 2000 population and housing unit counts resulting from a new incorporation or annexation. Please read more about these options.


Please begin by filling out Form BC-1868(EF) Request for Official Certification:
