2020 Census: Address Canvassing Soon

Members of the U.S. Census Bureau will be validating, correcting, or deleting existing Census addresses, adding missing addresses, and adding or correcting locations for specific addresses before the decennial census. At this time, only select addresses will be canvassed. Census Bureau employees will not be asking for information about individuals but rather about addresses and habitable locations.

How to verify employment: We realize that census workers may draw the attention of residents or law enforcement personnel who are concerned about the presence of strangers in their neighborhoods. Each temporary decennial Census employee will have an official identification card with the employees name, picture, and an expiration date. Regional level staff can be identified by their Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Card. Both temporary and regional staff can be identified by their laptop computer with a Census Bureau logo on top, and a black canvas bag with a Census Bureau logo.
