As part of a nationwide effort by the U.S. Census, address canvassing has begun in Polk County and across the country making it the first major field operation of the 2020 Census.
To help identify employees, badges and briefcases indicating their affiliation with the Census Bureau will be displayed. They will knock on doors, introduce themselves as Census Bureau employees, show their official government ID badges and explain the purpose of the visit. They then will ask a few simple questions to verify the address and any additional living quarters on the property for inclusion in the census.
Read more about address canvassing on the Census Bureau website.
The 2020 Census: In-Field Address Canvassing (IFAC) Viewer provides county information on areas that listers will visit.
