How do I know the person at my door is an official census worker?

If someone visits your home to collect information, make sure they have a valid ID badge with a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark. The Census Bureau will never ask for your Social Security number, your bank account or credit card numbers or donations of any sort. They will not contact you on behalf of a political party or candidate.
