    Census Takers Begin Visiting Homes

    Census takers have begun visiting homes that haven’t responded yet to the 2020 Census. These census takers are hired from our community and know that a complete and accurate count will benefit our area. The interview is quick and easy. The census taker will ask the household the 2020 Census questions and enter the answers in their secure Census Bureau phone.

    Census takers will follow public health guidelines when they visit. They are trained to wear a mask, conduct the interview outside and allow 6 ft. of social distancing.

    Households can identify the census takers by their ID badge with their photograph, a U.S. Department of commerce watermark, and an expiration date. They will also have a Census Bureau – issued phone and many will carry a bag with the Census Bureau logo.

    Even after census takers begin visiting homes, households can still respond online at 2020census.gov, by phone at 844-330-2020, or by mail until September 30.

    Please contact the Regional Census Center if you have questions about the 2020 Census or local census takers.
