The 2020 Census will begin soon. It is important that all Washingtonians are counted. Unfortunately, some people will seek to take advantage of Census activities and may try to obtain sensitive personal information. There is always a way to verify that a Census worker- called an enumerator- is actually employed by the Census Bureau, and requests for information are legitimate. Please see the Census website for more information. 

The attached flyer provides tips on how to avoid the most common types of Census scams.
