Census Takers Are Following Up with Non-responding Households
Starting July 16, census takers will begin interviewing households that have yet to respond to the 2020 Census in regions managed by the area census offices on this map.
In subsequent weeks, the Census Bureau will announce additional census offices as it prepares to begin enumeration activities nationwide. The majority of census offices across the country will begin follow-up work on August 11. All offices will conclude work no later than October 31.
Census takers will follow local public health guidelines when they visit. Learn more at Census Takers In Your Neighborhood.

Has Your Household Completed the Census 2020?
While we’re all at home now is the time to respond to the 2020 Census. The U.S. Census Bureau collects information on the people, places and economy of America to help government officials make important decisions like how much federal funding and community services to provide each jurisdiction.
Currently only 64.3% of Juniata County residents have responded.
The fun activities outlined below reinforce to children and families the importance of responding to the 2020 Census:
- For pre-K, read and show children the Everyone Counts! story and activity book, which features people of different sexes, ages, races, ethnicities, and abilities.
- For grades K-2, encourage children to learn about the numbers of people nationwide who speak English, Spanish, and other languages at home.
- For grades 3-4, prompt children to compare the characteristics of people in their state with the characteristics of people in three states in other regions of the country.
- For grades 5-6, ask children to calculate data on languages spoken in the United States and talk to them about the findings.
- For grades 7-8, have your kids discover how the diversity of the United States has changed over time by examining historical data and changes to census questions about race and ethnicity.
- For grades 9-12, ask your teens to analyze the growth in minority-owned businesses over the past decade.
If you haven’t completed the Census 2020, it’s time to stand up and be counted so our communities will receive a fair share of resources from the federal government.
