The U.S. Census Bureau, in coordination with federal, state and local health officials, has announced it will begin to drop off 2020 Census questionnaire packets at front doors of households throughout Missouri this week.
The bureau staff plans to deliver 2020 Census invitations and paper questionnaires at the front doors of roughly 5.1 million stateside households and 122,884 households in Missouri. According to a news release from the bureau, this is done in areas where the majority of households do not receive mail at a physical address.
“The operation is crucial to ensure a complete and accurate count of all communities, which helps guide hundreds of billions of dollars in public and private sector spending per year,” the release noted. “People are strongly encouraged to respond promptly to the 2020 Census using the ID number included in the questionnaire packet.”
