Will Census Takers Stop Following Up Earlier than October 15?
No. Census takers will continue to follow up in-person with homes across the country through October 15 in an effort to reach everyone. Local Census offices are constantly analyzing their workload. When the percentage of households who have responded reaches a certain threshold, any remaining households who have not responded are assigned to experienced individual census takers, who continue to attempt to contact that household as we strive for a complete count.
