As we continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, we will adjust census taker operations as necessary in order to follow the guidance of federal, state, and local health authorities.
In some areas, census takers have resumed their work updating address lists and leaving paper questionnaires at homes that have not yet received them.
If someone visits your home later this year 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.
