Expect to see census workers throughout the Issaquah area again, as the U.S. Census Bureau conducts follow-up operations at a handful of houses.

Workers will be knocking on doors at some houses in Issaquah to collect information in order to confirm the accuracy of the data collected by the original census taker.

The process also helps census workers identify vacant homes, a special concern given the number of residences in foreclosure due to the economic downturn. Workers will visit households listed as vacant on April 1 to double check for occupants.

The operation verifies the location of addresses provided by forms or through telephone interviews to ensure the decennial census counts everyone in the correct location.
