Mayor Michael A. Nutter, a champion of the 2010 Census, addressed a group of Census Takers last week, thanking them for their commitment to their community’s progress, and conveying the benefits reaped by a complete count in Philadelphia. Census Takers begin to visit households that did not return their 2010 Census forms on Saturday, May 1 through July 2010.

 

“You are part of a team of 7500 Philadelphians, representing every neighborhood in our City. You are here because you know your neighborhoods best, and it is up to you to go back to your neighborhoods and make sure everyone counts…there is so much at stake. For each person NOT counted in the census, Philadelphia could lose more than $2800. That’s $2800 per person, per year for ten years. It’s money for the things your neighborhoods need – head start, schools, hospitals, affordable housing, public transit and more. We simply cannot afford to miss a single person.”

 

The group of 16 Census Takers visited by Mayor Nutter are currently in training, and will join others throughout the nation as they begin to visit households on Saturday, May 1. Census Takers are recruited to work in the neighborhoods in which they live, and can be identified by local residents via their US Department of Commerce Census Bureau badges and a black canvas shoulder bag featuring the US Census Bureau logo. Residents can additionally request a valid photo ID matching the name on the badge.

 

The 2010 Census does not request social security numbers, citizenship, income or banking information. Census Takers will not need to enter the home, as interviews can be conducted at the door or outside of the home. If a respondent is not home, a Notice of Visit will be left with a phone number to schedule a more convenient time. Census Takers make multiple attempts to contact a home.
