Census Bureau opens phone lines to help you

Posted: Updated:

We have already given you lots of information about what to expect from the census, but now if you have any questions they can be answered with a simple phone call.

And the Census Bureau now has six languages available when you do call: English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Russian.

We have also learned that not only will you be able to ask questions and get information about the census, but you will be able to take the questionnaire over the phone. This will be convenient for you but also a huge help to the Census Bureau. This allows them to reach to places where forms might not, including migrant farm camps.

The lines will be open from 8 a.m. To 9 p.m. (local times) seven days a week starting today until July 30th. Here are those numbers for you to call: 866-872-6868 and for the hearing-impaired the number is 866-783-2010.
