How Can You Verify That Someone Is a Census Worker?

If someone visits your home to collect information for the 2020 Census, you can do the following to verify their identity:

  • First, check to make sure that they have a valid ID badge, with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date.
  • If you still have questions about their identity, you can contact your Regional Census Center to speak with a Census Bureau representative.

If you would like to earn some money, be a Census worker! Pay is $16.50/hour (must be at least 18)
