U.S. Census workers have been going going door to door in the City of Falls Church from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. since July 23, walking through city neighborhoods, contacting those who have not yet filled out their census forms. As of this week, 79.5 percent of City households have responded to the Census. More responses could make a difference in federal funding for important projects, schools, and more!
Make sure the person at your door is a verified Census representative, and know what information they will ask:
- IDENTIFICATION: U.S. Census workers will have an ID from the U.S. Census, with a watermark from the Commerce Department, to identify themselves. They also will be wearing PPE/masks.
- CONFIRMATION: The public may confirm a Census worker’s identity by calling the U.S. Census Bureau at 844-330-2020 — this phone number is answered by a person who can confirm the census worker’s identity.
- SAFETY: A Census worker will never ask for your Social Security number, banking information, money, or other similar financial information. You are not required to speak to a Census worker.
- OPTIONS: You are not required to speak to a Census worker in person. However, we strongly encourage you to participate in the U.S. Census. All answers are confidential. You may complete your Census form by phone: 844-330-2020.
Census workers may be in the City into the autumn to complete their work, or until they have reached everyone who has not yet filled out their Census forms.
Completing the Census is easy:
- Call 844-330-2020
