Census Door-to-Door Visits

Posted on August 10, 2020


Census Bureau employees are knocking on doors in Oakwood neighborhoods to collect responses from households that have not already self-responded.

What To Expect:

  • Census takers wear masks and follow local public health guidelines when they visit. All census takers complete a COVID-19 training on safety protocols.
  • 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.
  • If you respond online or by phone today, a census taker is less likely to have to visit your home to collect your response.
  • If someone visits your home to collect census information, you can 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.
