How to identify an official Census worker

Posted:

KANSAS CITY (KWWL)-- The U.S. Census Bureau is trying to help you identify official Census workers conducting door-to-door follow-ups. 

Census workers must present an ID Badge with the U.S. Department of Commerce logo.  They may also be carrying a black canvass bag with the logo on it. 

Census workers will not ask to come inside your home or ask for your social security number.  They will also not ask any information about your taxes or income.

All the Census information is confidential and every Census Bureau employee must take an oath.  If disclose information they may be subject to five years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine.
