Census Bureau will start delivering questionnaire packets in Alabama this week

The U.S. Census Bureau, in coordination with federal, state and local health officials, will begin to drop off 2020 Census questionnaire packets at front doors of households in Alabama this week.

This is done in areas where the majority of households do not receive mail at their physical address.

The Census Bureau began hand delivering census materials March 15 but suspended all fieldwork for this operation March 18 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Temporary field staff have been trained to observe all social distancing protocols and will wear official government-provided personal protective equipment for their safety and the safety of the public. This operation is contactless and follows the most current federal health and safety guidelines.

The Census Bureau will deliver 2020 Census invitations and paper questionnaires at the front doors of roughly 5.1 million stateside households and 82,100 in Alabama. People are encouraged to respond promptly to the 2020 Census using the ID number included in the questionnaire packet. Responding with a census ID or the paper questionnaire helps ensure the best count of the community.

People can respond online, by phone or by using the paper form in the packet.
