DALLAS – The U.S. Census Bureau Dallas Region has launched its “Stop the Knock” campaign, which encourages residents to respond to the census now to lessen the possibility of a census employee knocking on their door later in the month.

The initiative is part of the bureau’s Rural Week efforts.

Field workers are expected to begin canvassing the rural and hard-to-count locations to have residents complete their questionnaire.

In addition to the messaging, the region will join in on events throughout the North Texas area to inform those attending about the different ways the census can be completed, including online by visiting 2020census.gov, by phone at 844-330-2020 (English) or 844-469-2020 (Spanish), or by mail.

At this time, North Texas counties hold an average of 62.9% self-response rate, which is more than the national response of 62.9% and the state of Texas response of 57.8%.

The 2020 Census helps ensure a complete and accurate count of all communities in the United States, which helps guide hundreds of billions of dollars in public and private sector spending per year for the area and state of Texas.
