Is this the first online census?

The 2020 census is not the first online U.S. census. There was an online option for the 2000 census, although it was only available for the short version of that year's form and only in English. The 2020 census is set to be the first primarily online count, allowing all U.S. households to reply through the Internet. The bureau is also collecting responses on paper, over the phone and in person.
