The United States Census Bureau today is launching its door-to-door canvas to knock on the doors of households that didn’t mail back their 2010 forms.

Workers will identify themselves with a census ID badge that contains a Department of Commerce watermark. The census taker may also be carrying a bag with a Census Bureau logo.   Census workers will not ask for citizenship status, Social Security numbers, credit card or banking information.

If asked, he or she will provide supervisor contact information and/or the local census office phone number for verification. If census workers are unable to reach a household member in-person, they will also attempt contact by phone to conduct the interview with the household member.
