[ARCHIVED] 2020 Census Update

Census 2020 Graphic Resized for Trending

As of September 16, Riverside’s 2020 Census self-response rate is 82.4%.  We need everyone’s cooperation to ensure a complete and accurate count of everyone living in Riverside!  Beginning the week of July 30, Census Bureau employees began visiting households in suburban Cook County that have not yet responded to the 2020 Census, including Riverside residents who have not yet responded.  Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Census takers will follow all public health guidelines for Illinois including wearing a mask, speaking to people outside their homes in a well-ventilated space, maintaining a distance of 6 feet between themselves and the person they are speaking with and frequently washing their hands. 

All Census takers will have an ID badge that bears their photo and the United States Department of Commerce logo and will have a Census Bureau issued cell phone.  Many will also be carrying a tote bag with the Census Bureau logo.  If a Census taker visits you, expect to answer questions regarding your name, age, race and sex.  A Census taker will never ask for your social security number, bank account information or citizenship status.   Census interviews will be conducted between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., including on weekends, when people are more likely to be home.  If no one is home when a Census taker visits, they will leave a notice of the visit with information about how to respond online or by phone. If necessary, a census taker will return several times to ensure the household is accurately included in the census. All in person interviews will be concluded by September 30, 2020.  Please note:  households can still respond online at, by phone at 844-330-2020 or by mail until September 30.  Online and phone responses can be made in 13 different languages.  Please visit for more information.  If anyone representing him or herself as a Census taker is unable to provide proper identification, do not open your door to them, but rather call West Central Consolidated Communications (WC3) at 708-853-1384.
