STATEWIDE — Census workers are going door to door in Indiana and if you haven’t responded to the Census yet, you’re being asked to talk with the census takers. Jeanine Beasley, a representative of the U.S. Census Bureau for Indiana, said you will be asked nine simple questions.
She said taking the census during a pandemic does mean the employees will be extra careful, like standing six feet away from residents.
Beasley said if you are visited and you’re not home, you’ll find a card asking you to respond online or by phone. She said the response rate in Indiana is above average, at about 68.6 percent. The national response rate is 64.5 percent.
