Will a census taker come to your house?

All official census takers will provide you with identification and verification information.

The 2010 Census was due May 1, 2010. Anyone who did not respond to the mail-in questionnaire will receive an in-person visit from a census taker. While it is very important to be cooperative, households should take care to open their doors to official census takers only. Look for the following identifiers: Official census takers will have a badge with a Census Bureau logo and will provide you with supervisor contact information and/or the local census office phone number. Do not be afraid to call for verification. A real census taker will not be offended. Census takers will never ask you for your citizenship status, Social Security number, or any type of credit card or banking information. ♦

    Not sure what you mean by ‘effective date’. But, the date that the census is trying to get a snapshot of is 4/1/2010. We’re trying to count everyone where they were on that date.
