DON'T WAIT FOR A VISIT FROM THE CENSUS WORKER -
COMPLETE THE CENSUS SURVEY NOW!

If your household has yet to respond to the census, you can expect a knock at your door soon. In Statesville, that is about 40% of households. This number is too high and risks a lot of undercount with one less month to complete the count.

We STILL need people to self-respond!
RESPOND ON-LINE, BY PHONE OR MAIL. Here's how!

Self-response has historically been more accurate and reliable, and with the shortened timeline, we need census workers to have fewer households to go to.

But if you do get visited by a census worker, keep this information in mind:

  • Census Interviews are Safe and Quick
  • Workers will have PPE and are trained in health and safety guidelines.
  • Interviews will be conducted outside and maintain social distancing.
  • Many workers are bilingual, but other language assistance can be requested.

It takes about 10 minutes to answer the 10 basic questions.

How to Identify a Census Worker

  • Valid photo ID badge from the U.S. Department of Commerce with expiration date.
  • Laptop, handheld device, and/or bag with a Census Bureau logo.
  • Census workers will provide a Supervisor’s and/or the regional office phone number.
  • Workers carry a letter from the Director of the Census Bureau on official letterhead.
If in doubt, call the U.S. census Atlanta Regional Office at 1-800-424-6074.
