Census Takers in your neighborhood

Starting this month, census takers will visit homes that haven’t yet responded to the 2020 Census. If you respond online or by phone today, a census taker is less likely to have to visit your home to collect your response. Public response (online, phone or mail) began in March.

In-person visits to households that haven’t responded has begun.

Census takers are hired from your area, and their goal is to help you and everyone in your home be counted in the 2020 Census. If the census taker who visits your home does not speak your language, you may request a return visit from a census taker who does speak your language.

If no one is home when the census taker visits, the census taker will leave a notice of their visit with information about how to respond online, by phone or by mail.
