Census Takers Begin In Person Visits to Unresponsive Households in Lombard Beginning August 11  

As part of its Non-response Followup Operation (NRFU), the U.S. Census Bureau is visiting every household that has not already responded to the 2020 Census to ensure a complete and accurate count. Census takers are scheduled to visit non-responding households in Lombard between August 11 – September 30, 2020.

When visiting homes, Census takers will:

  • help you and everyone in your home be counted in the 2020 Census.
  • ask a few questions and enter answers on their secure Census Bureau smart phone.
  • leave a notice with information on how to respond online, if no one comes to the door.
  • maintain social distancing protocols and requirements with regard to health and safety.
  • make additional visits to collect response from the household.

Homes that have responded to the 2020 Census online (www.my2020census.gov) or over the phone (855-562-2020) are less likely to receive a visit from a  Census taker.

If you respond online or by phone today, a census taker is less likely to have to visit your home to collect your response. RESPOND TODAY at www.my2020census.gov or call 800-923-8282. 


About Census Takers

  • Census takers are hired locally to help you and everyone in your home be counted in the 2020 Census.
  • Census takers will follow social distancing protocols and all applicable state and local requirements with regard to health and safety. 
  • Census takers will wear masks and follow local public health guidelines when they visit your home.
  • U.S. Census Bureau Census takers are not covered by the current local ban on commercial solicitation and charitable door-to-door sales because they will not be soliciting funds or conducting commercial sales and because the Census is an essential government activity mandated by the U.S. Constitution.
  • If someone visits your home this year to collect information for the 2020 Census, check to make sure they have a valid ID badge with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date. Census workers may also carry Census Bureau bags and other equipment with the Census Bureau logo.
