OREGON – Training is now underway for census takers in Lane, Linn, Douglas, Benton, and Coos counties.

Starting Aug. 11, they will begin to follow up with households that have not yet responded to the 2020 Census.

Oregon's current self-response rate is 65%, with Benton County being one of the state's top five counties with the highest response rates.

Census takers will be wearing masks and following public health guidelines. They have also received virtual COVID-19 training on social distancing protocols and safety guidance.

A valid government ID badge can easily identify census takers with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date on the badge. To confirm a census taker's identity, you can contact your regional census center to speak with a Census Bureau representative.

If no one is home during the visit, a notice will be left with more information about how to respond online, by mail or by phone.
