Census Bureau to begin non-response follow-up in Tarrant County

Personnel will be easily identifiable as Census Bureau representatives.

The U.S. Census Bureau has accelerated non-response follow-up in Tarrant County. The campaign begins Aug. 1 and runs through Sept. 30.

During non-response follow-up, also known as enumeration, census workers will visit every household in Tarrant County that has not responded to the 2020 Census. The goal remains the same: to gain a full and accurate count of everyone residing in the community.

If a census worker comes to your door:

  • They will present an identification badge with their name, photograph, a Department of Commerce watermark and an expiration date.
  • They will have an official bag and Census Bureau-issued laptop or smartphone, bearing the Census Bureau logo.
  • Census Workers will use personal protective equipment (masks, gloves) and will follow local public health COVID-19 guidelines when they visit households, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

The Census Bureau will never ask for:

  • Your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers.
  • Anything on behalf of a political party.
  • Money or donations.

If you suspect fraud, call 844-330-2020 to speak with a Census Bureau representative.
