Census workers visit Albany neighborhoods

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The 2010 Census count won't begin for another year, but you could already see workers in your neighborhood verifying your address.

Some of the nations more than 140,000 census workers have been making their way though Albany neighborhoods checking addresses.

It's a critical first step to make sure every housing unit receives a census questionnaire in March of 2010. Community leaders met Monday to get an update on the process and explained workers will be easily identifiable.

"Those census workers will have a white census badge. They will also have a bag that says census 2010. They should also have a GPS computer and what they'rte doing is verifying that that address is an actual address," said Fer-Rell Malone, Census 2010 Partnership Specialist.

Once canvassing in Albany is complete the group will move to Camilla and Thomas County. A few weeks after quality control representative could be in your neighborhood verifying the information.
