Census Follow Up Calls Getting Underway

Census workers are beginning to make follow up calls to help ensure that everyone gets counted in the census. According to information from the Chicago Regional Census Center, people across Illinois should be ready to receive a phone call from the number 1-844-809-7717. If you get a call from that number, that is a census taker trying to get in touch with you. If you receive this call but you are concerned that it may be a spoof, or an attempt to steal your information, you can verify that you are speaking with a legitimate census taker by hanging up and calling back the number, 844-809-7717. If you are still concerned but would still like to help the census, you can find out more information at 2020Census.gov where they have information on how you can safely interact with census takers over the phone.
