With about 45 days left before the U.S. Census Bureau will stop collecting data, Phoenix's self-response rate is lagging at 61.4%. <br><br>Census workers are now conducting door-to-door visits to follow up with those who have not yet responded. In most cases, census workers will make up to six attempts at each housing unit address to count possible residents. This includes leaving notification of the attempted visit on the door. <br><br> The notification will include reminder information on how to respond online, by paper or by phone. In addition, census workers may try to reach the household by phone to conduct the interview. Census takers will go to great lengths to ensure that no one is missed in the census. After exhausting their efforts to do an in-person interview with a resident of an occupied housing unit, they will seek out proxy sources — a neighbor, a rental agent, a building manager or some other knowledgeable person familiar with the housing unit — to obtain as much basic information about the occupants as they can. <br><br>Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure and protected by federal law. By law, your information is confidential and cannot be used against you by any government agency or court. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics and no other purpose. The Census Bureau uses IT systems that are designed to defend against and contain cyberthreats and security for their system is a top priority. <br><br>It just takes 10 minutes to respond and you can still do so online, by phone or by mail. Simply visit <a href="https://icount2020.info/" target="_blank">iCount2020.info</a>; or call 1-844- 330-2020 English, 1-844-468-2020 Spanish; or respond by mail.

This is a quickly growing area where additional resources such as police and fire stations are critical. Get counted! The U.S. Census Bureau is sending 2020 Census reminder postcards this week to an estimated 34.3 million households. This will be the final mailing before census takers begin visiting nonresponding ho​useholds across the nation in mid-August. <br><br>Responding now minimizes the need for census takers to visit homes to collect responses in person. Take a moment to help your community for the next 10 years— complete your 2020 Census and encourage your neighbors to do the same. <br><br>There are three ways to respond: iCount2020.info; 1-844-330-2020 English, 1-844-468-2020 Spanish; or by mail.
