Census Takers in Your Neighborhood


Let’s make all of Dania Beach Count!
Census takers in our City Neighborhoods visiting all who have not responded. Please answer their questions. The process is easy, safe and extremely important for you and our Community!


If you haven’t responded, a census taker will visit your household soon to help you respond. Please answer their questions. 

  • The census taker will ask you a few questions and enter your answers on their secure Census Bureau phone.  
  • If you’re not home when the census taker visits, they will leave a notice of their visit with information about how to respond online or by phone. 

Answering the census taker’s questions is easy, safe and important.  

  • The interview is quick and easy
    • The 2020 Census only asks a few questions like name, age, race and sex. It doesn’t ask for Social Security numbers, bank information or citizenship status. 
    • It’s easy, even if you don’t speak English well. If the census taker doesn’t speak your language, they can connect you with someone who does, or they can give you a phone number to call and respond in your language over the phone.  
  • It’s safe.  
    • Census takers will wear masks and follow public health guidelines when they visit.  
    • By law, census takers must keep your answers confidential for life. They face stiff fines and jail time if they break that law.  
    • The Census Bureau is required by law to protect any personal information we collect and keep it strictly confidential. 
    • We will not share your responses with immigration or law enforcement agencies. 
  • It’s important. By answering a few questions, you’ll help shape the future of your community for the next 10 years.  
    • The 2020 Census results determine how many seats your state gets in Congress and how public funds are spent on schools, roads, fire and emergency services, hospitals, and more in your community. 


Census takers are from your community. They know that a complete and accurate count will benefit your area.   

  • Census takers are hired right from your community.  
  • Census takers have been hired locally to ensure  they are available to speak the languages spoken in the community. If the census taker who visits doesn’t speak your language, you may request a return visit from a census taker who does. 
  • You can easily identify the census takers by their government ID badge and Census Bureau phone. Many census takers will also carry a bag with the Census Bureau logo. 
  • All census takers undergo a background check before being hired to visit people’s homes. 


If you haven’t responded yet, now is the time. 

  • Respond now instead of waiting for a census taker to knock on your door.   
  • If a census taker knocks on your door, please cooperate.  
  • Even though lists are updated daily, it’s possible that a census taker could still visit a household that has already responded. For example,  your response may have arrived too late the previous day or your form was incomplete. The followup visit serves as a safety net to ensure everyone is counted. 
  • If no one is home, the census taker will leave a notice of the visit asking the household to respond.

If you have responded to the census, you may still be visited by a census taker conducting quality checks.  

  • These visits are one of the many quality checks that are done to ensure a complete and accurate count. The interview should take just a few minutes. 
    • A small number of households may be contacted for further follow-up checks as part of Post-Enumeration Survey. This survey helps measure the accuracy of the 2020 Census by estimating how many people and housing units were missed or counted erroneously in the census. 
  • Other Census Bureau representatives will be visiting homes for ongoing surveys, such as the American Community Survey. These other surveys provide valuable information about the education, employment, economy and more that community leaders need to make better-informed decisions. 
  • All census takers will be trained on social distancing protocols. They have been provided masks and it is required that all census takers wear them while conducting their work.   


Here is how you can identify a Census Enumerator:
