We encourage you to find fun and creative ways to stay in touch with friends and family while physically distanced. We need to support and comfort each other now more than ever.

Let’s all take precautions to stay healthy and end this pandemic as soon as possible. We will get through this together, as we stay apart.

Census data helps distribute funding for:

  • Housing
  • Education
  • Transportation
  • Employment
  • Healthcare
  • Public Policy

How Do I Avoid Scams?

The U.S. Census Bureau is committed to making the 2020 Census quick, easy, and safe for all participants. Here are some tips to help you stay safe.

During the 2020 Census, the Census Bureau will never:

  • Send unsolicited email requesting participation in the census
  • Ask for your Social Security number
  • Ask for your bank account or credit card numbers
  • Ask for Money or donations

If someone visits your home to collect a response for the 2020 Census, you can verify their identity by checking that they have a valid ID badge, with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date.

If you suspect fraud, call 800-923-8282 to speak with a local Census Bureau representative.

Thank you for helping us make Cumberland Count!
