Friday is text our snowbirds day in Minnesota.

According to the Minnesota State Demographic Center, Minnesota is home to over 44,000 snowbirds – people who call this state home but live somewhere else for part of the year.

The Minnesota State Demographic Center is inviting the public to help raise census awareness and participation by reaching out to snowbirds on March 13th.

Starting March 12th, snowbirds can easily respond to the census online by visiting, or calling 844-330-2020.
