Enumeration is the primary data collection phase for the 2020 Census of Guam. Through this operation, census workers will deliver a Notice of Visit to each household containing instructions on how to respond to the 2020 Census of Guam. This will ensure each resident is counted once, only once and in the right place.
NOTICE OF VISIT:
A Notice of Visit is verification a census worker has visited your household. The notice will contain instructions on how to contact the Guam Census Office to complete the 2020 Census over the telephone or to make an appointment for an in-person interview. Residents will also have the option to complete an in-person interview with a census worker when they deliver the Notice of Visit. Notice of Visit delivery will occur during daylight hours, Monday through Sunday, no earlier than 8:00 AM. Enumerators will be available for telephone interviews Monday through Saturday, 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM and Sunday 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
Every 2020 Census worker will wear a face mask, gloves, and adhere to all social distancing guidelines. They will be easily identifiable by their bright yellow 2020 Census of Guam safety vest, a U.S. Census Bureau tote bag, and two official government badges. All vehicles will display an official 2020 Census of Guam car magnet. During the 2020 Census of Guam interview, census workers will ask a series of questions about every household member, including their age, race and ethnicity, healthcare, and employment status. They will also ask questions about the housing structure itself, such as, the year the structure was built, the number of rooms, and monthly utility costs.
