Census 2020

This guide provides resources to learn more about the 2020 Census.

Report Scams & Frauds

Avoiding scams and frauds. The census form does not ask for the following information: Social Security Number, money or donations, your bank or credit card information. If you see it on a form, it is a scam. Do not cooperate and report the interaction to rumors@census.gov.

If you suspect fraud, call 844-330-2020 to speak with a Census Bureau representative. If it is determined that the visitor who came to your door does not work for the Census Bureau, contact your local police department.
