Census takers started going door to door in May to count people in households that did not receive or return 2010 census forms. If a form arrived too late to be processed, a census taker will visit the household as well.

If a census taker comes knocking, use the following tips to verify if the worker is legitimate:

The census taker must present identification — a badge with a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark and expiration date. The census taker might also carry a black canvas bag with a U.S. Census Bureau logo.

If asked, the census taker will provide the supervisor contact information and the local census office phone number for verification.

The census taker will only ask the questions that appear on the 2010 Census form.

The census taker will not ask for Social Security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers, and will never solicit for donations, or contact residents by e-mail.
