Census Takers Begin Canvassing in Walworth County

Per Regional Census Partnership Specialist Patti Gillete, Walworth County is one of several counties in Wisconsin selected for an early start to non response follow-up. Census takers will start going door to door beginning today, July 30 (instead of starting on August 11). 

So far, more than 62,508 Walworth County households have responded to the 2020 Census (60.7%). For those who have not yet responded  – there’s still time to respond at 2020census.gov – your response matters!

Walworth County has a long way to go to reach 100% – we still need more than 40,505 households to complete the 2020 Census. Responding to the 2020 Census in this time of social distancing makes a difference for the well-being of your neighbors and your community. Your response helps to funnel much needed federal funds to your local community for health care, emergency response, schools, education programs, roads, and many other public services over the next 10 years. 

That said, it has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone (844-330-2020) or by mail—all without having to meet a census taker. To learn more, visit 2020census.gov
