Visits Serve as Quality Checks to Ensure Everyone Is Counted

AUG. 31, 2020 — With door-to-door visits by census takers now underway, the U.S. Census Bureau is informing households that they may also receive a follow-up visit to ensure everyone is counted in the 2020 Census. So far, 64.9% of all housing units have responded online, by phone or by mail, and another 17.5% have been counted by census takers and other field data collection operations. In total, over 82.4% of all housing units throughout the nation have been accounted for in the 2020 Census as of Aug. 30. The Census Bureau is working to count the remaining households—about 1 in every 5 households across the nation.

Although the Census Bureau updated their schedule August 3 to say the count will now be ending September 30 instead of October 31, Census takers have been in Rhode Island (Providence area) since August 6.
