2020 Census Update

"On behalf of the U.S. Census Bureau I want to inform you that we will resume Update/Leave operations throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on Monday May 11, 2020.


The Update/Leave operation is designed to occur in areas where the majority of housing units either do not have mail delivered to the physical location of the housing unit or the mail delivery information for the housing unit cannot be verified. The purpose of this operation is to leave a questionnaire package at every identified housing unit.

 The Update/Leave operation does not require interaction between households and a Census Bureau employee and follows current federal health and safety guidelines.

 We ask that you help spread the word and urge people to respond promptly to the 2020 Census using the ID number included in the questionnaire packet. People receiving questionnaire packages can respond online, by phone or by using the paper form in the packet."
