Will my business be visited by an enumerator?

Nearly all Census Bureau business surveys are conducted by mail, phone, or electronically.

If a Census Bureau employee contacts you, they will identify themselves, providing their name and the name of the survey they are working on.

The Census Bureau sends field representatives to visit businesses only for two construction-related surveys. If a Census Bureau employee visits your business, he or she will

  1. Show you their Census Bureau identification badge,
  2. Tell you the name of the survey for which your participation is needed.
