The address canvassing operation 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.
You might receive calls about Address Canvassers in your area, so please be aware and know that:
* Address Canvassers 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 additional living quarters on the property for inclusion in the census.
* Address Canvassers will introduce themselves as a Census Bureau employee, show their official government ID badge, and explain the purpose of the visit.
