Did the Census Bureau contact you about participating in a survey? The Census Bureau has many ongoing surveys of households and businesses in addition to the 2020 Census, such as the American Community Survey. This site provides answers about our surveys and who to contact for more information.
The Census Bureau is committed to ensuring your safety as we continue to collect information through our household surveys amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, all states have resumed in-person visits for cases when we are unable to reach you by phone to complete the survey. However, all survey operations are subject to ongoing public health updates and assessments at the local level.
