How do I identify a census worker?
A U.S. Census representative will always have official census ID if they come to your house.
ID badges will have their photograph, the Department of Commerce watermark, and an
expiration date. They will be able to provide you with supervisor contact information and/
or the regional office phone number for verification, and a letter from the Director of the
Census Bureau on Census Bureau letterhead. They may also carry a laptop and/or bag with a
Census Bureau logo.
If you still have questions about their identity or you suspect fraud, call 844-330-2020 to speak with a Census Bureau representative. If it is determined that the visitor who came to your door does not work for the Census Bureau, contact your local police department.
