Boxes <br></strong></p>“As of July 1, 59.7 percent of households in Phoenix responded to the census, statewide 5804 percent, and nationally 61.9 percent of households have responded. <br><br>The Census Bureau is sending <a target="_blank" href="https://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/decennial/2020/resources/mailings/Reminders/Reminder-Postcard_D-PB-E.pdf"><span style="color:rgb(0, 0, 255);">postcards</span></a> to about 1.3 million post office boxes in communities that are required to use P.O. boxes for mail delivery. The postcards alert households that a census taker may drop off census invitations or visit later to interview them.<br><br>The Census Bureau does not mail census invitations to P.O. boxes because each census response must be associated with the physical location where people live, not where they receive mail. The COVID-19 pandemic delayed delivery of census invitation packets to some communities, but census takers have <a target="_blank" href="https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-releases/2020/delivery-completed.html"><span style="color:rgb(0, 0, 255);">dropped off 96 percent of the packets as of June 18, 2020</span></a>. Households are encouraged to respond to the 2020 Census as soon as they receive their invitation packet. When responding, these households are also encouraged to use the Census ID provided in the packet or their street address – not their P.O. box number.<br> <br>There are three ways to respond:<span style="color:rgb(0, 0, 255);"> </span><a target="_blank" href="https://icount2020.info/"><span style="color:rgb(0, 0, 255);">iCount2020.info</span>​</a>; 1-844-330-2020 English, 1-844-468-2020 Spanish; or by mail.  If you have any questions, call my office at 602-262-7444."<br> <br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district1Newsdistrict-1
