This audio news release (English / Spanish) describes door-to-door census taking occurring in May, June and early July 2010. Local census takers are visiting households that did not mail back a census form. All census takers carry an official badge and a shoulder bag -- both with the Department of Commerce seal -- and a binder. During a visit, census takers show ID and hand respondents an information sheet explaining that their answers are confidential. The census taker will complete the questionnaire, which should take about 10 minutes. If no one is home, a "notice of visit" will be left at the door inviting the resident to call the census taker to complete the form over the phone.
