2020 Census Address Canvassing

La Palma Census 2020

Earlier this month, the U.S. Census Bureau started their first major field operation of the 2020 Census: Address Canvassing.  Address canvassing improves and refines the Census Bureau’s address list of households nationwide, which is necessary to deliver invitations to respond to the census. The address list plays a vital role in ensuring a complete and accurate count of everyone living in the United States. Census Bureau employees have started walking through neighborhoods across the country checking addresses not verified in their software system, which will continue through mid-October. 

How to identify Census Bureau Employees: Employees will have badges and briefcases indicating their affiliation with the Census Bureau. They will knock on doors and ask a few simple questions to verify the address and any additional living quarters on the property for inclusion in the census. Employees will introduce themselves as a Census Bureau employee, show their official government ID badge, and explain the purpose of the visit. People may also ask them for a picture ID from another source to confirm their identity.

The U.S. Constitution mandates that a census of the population be conducted once every 10 years. Census data is used to determine  the number of seats each state holds in Congress and how more than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed back to states and local communities every year for services and infrastructure, including health care, jobs, schools, roads and businesses. 

For more information on address canvassing, visit the Census Bureau website.
