How do I recognize a census taker?

US Census: How to recognize a census taker?

I just showed this video to my US Citizenship class. They really appreciated the info about how to identify the census taker (badge, bag, address book).

The students also appreciated the clear explanation about how the census take would contact them (three times in person or by phone and/or by appointment).

The students were relieved that the census taker will not ask to come into the house, nor ask the person for their social security number, credit history, or for a donation. The students are ever vigilant against identity theft and other "tricks".

The sub-titles also were a big help for the English language learners.

Kudos to the Census Media Dept for all their fine videos!
