It's not too late to respond to the 2020 Census. Households can respond by completing and mailing back the paper questionnaire they received, by responding ONLINE, or by phone at 844-330-2020. Those who respond will not need to be visited to obtain their census response.
Census Takers in Your Neighborhoods
Nonresponse Follow-up began in Wood County on August 9 and will continue through September 30, 2020. Census Takers go door to door to obtain census data from households who have not responded.
What Households Can Expect
The Census Bureau will provide face masks to census takers and requires that census takers wear a mask while conducting their work. They will follow CDC and local public health guidelines when they visit. Census takers must complete a virtual COVID-19 training on social distancing protocols and other health and safety guidance before beginning their work in neighborhoods.
It is important to note that Census Takers are hired from your local communities. All census takers speak English, and many are bilingual. If a census taker does not speak the household’s language, the household may request a return visit from a census taker who does. Census takers will also have materials on hand to help identify the household’s language.
How to Identify Census Takers
Census takers can be easily identified by a valid government ID badge with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date on the badge. To confirm a census taker’s identity, the public may contact the Philadelphia regional census center at 267-780-2600 to speak with a Census Bureau representative.
