Iin mid-August, Census takers will begin knocking on doors all across the nation. Your information is such an important part of the 2020 Census, that if your household hasn't responded to the 2020 Census yet, Census workers will come to you in order to be sure you are counted. Please answer their questions. It is easy, safe and important. And it only takes a few minutes. To avoid a visit - STOP THE KNOCK - respond online TODAY at www.my2020census.gov or call toll-free 844-330-2020.
The health and safety of our staff and the public continues to be of utmost importance. All staff have received safety training and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to observe social distancing protocols in the COVID-19 environment.
If someone visits your home to collect information for the 2020 Census, check to make sure they have a valid ID badge with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date. Census workers may also carry Census Bureau bags and other equipment with the Census Bureau logo. If you still have questions about their identity, you can contact your Regional Census Center to speak with a Census Bureau representative: https://2020census.gov/en/contact-us/rcc.html
