Language Access Resources
Developed by Jefferson Counts Partner Organizations
The US Census Bureau has developed language access resources, all of which are available in 59-non English languages. The resources include:
- Printed Language Guides: Census language guides can be utilized to assist individuals in completing the Census. The guides also provide key information to help educate community members on the Census.
- Video Language Guides: These video language guides provide viewers with a step by step walk through of the online Census questionnaire.
- Language Glossaries: The language glossaries provide translations of commonly used terms for the 2020 Census.
- Posters and Graphics: Find posters and social media graphics in different languages by selecting the chosen language you’re searching for beneath the “filtering materials” box.
Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh’s Complete Count Committee has developed a social media toolkit of digital resources available in Arabic, Chinese, English, Nepali, Russian, Spanish, Swahili and Uzbek.
