U.S. Census Canvassing Begins in mid-August 2019
Posted on 08/07/2019
Census LogoThe U.S. Census Bureau will will begin canvassing in mid-August 2019, the next step in making sure Minnesota gets a complete count in the 2020 Census.

U.S. Census Bureau completes canvassing by validating, correcting or deleting existing Census Bureau addresses, adding missing addresses and adding or correcting locations of specific addresses before a decennial census. In previous address canvassing, field representatives traversed every road and visited each residential address in the United States. This time, only select addresses will be canvassed. Census Bureau employees will not be asking for information about individuals but rather about addresses and habitable locations.

How to verify employment
Census workers may draw the attention of residents or law enforcement personnel concerned about the presence of strangers in their neighborhoods.
Each temporary decennial Census employee will have an official identification card with the employees name, picture, and an expiration date. Regional level staff can be identified by their Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Card. Both temporary and regional level staff can be identified by their laptop computer with a Census Bureau logo on the top, and a black canvas bag with a Census Bureau logo.
