Dear 2010 Census Partners,
As you are aware, the U.S. Census Bureau has about 635,000 census workers going door-to-door right now to follow-up with about 48 million households who have not yet participated in the 2010 Census. How can a resident recognize a census worker coming to their door? What can they expect when one visits? How can they protect themselves from being scammed? We’ve been circulating the following resources to answer these important questions and wanted to make sure they were at your disposal as well. Please feel free to share!
