Census forms are now making their way across the nation and officials want to make sure the process runs smoothly and safely.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau you can be contacted by mail, telephone or a visit from a census taker, but not through e-mail.
If a census worker comes to your home, make sure that person has an identification badge and a confidentiality notice.
Also, don't give census takers any financial information like your social security number or credit card numbers.
All information given to the census is confidential.
"People hired by the census you can trust. They're not allowed to share any information, and if they do they're punished by law. Even the President can't get census information if he wanted it," Lauren Behe, with Washington/Morgan Community Action said.
If you have any questions concerning the 2010 census, Q&A centers are being scheduled in Washington and Morgan Counties. To find out when and where just contact the Washington/Morgan Community Action at 740-373-3745.
