 "Our next phase of operations for the decennial Census begins August 11th with Non-Response Follow Up. Census takers will be in your neighborhood to interview those that have not had a chance to complete the Census."  - July 2 message from U.S. Census Bureau Partnership Analyst Kimberly Robinson

June 2 press release from Yavapai County PIO David McAtee

In a May 18  update from the office of Senator Krysten Sinema, AZ., it was announced that Census offices are resuming operations in most of their state offices, and that door-to-door operations will soon start up“… in communities which do not receive home mail delivery from the postal service. These households likely have not yet received their census forms, and have not yet had the opportunity to be counted. During Update Leave, census field workers will go door to door in these communities, and drop off a paper census form for each household to complete.
The health and well-being of Census workers and the households they visit is the first priority of the Census Bureau. All Census staff will be issued personal protective equipment, and will be trained in social distancing protocols. The Update Leave operation will be a no-contact operation, meaning that census staff will not knock or ring doorbells, and are instructed to not interact with residents.”

5/11 Announcement from Regional Census Representative Kimberly Robinson:
"Anyone that needs assistance completing the Census questionnaire can call or text me at (602) 315-1295; we can go over the questionnaire over the phone. Everything is confidential, and I am bound by Title 13 to never reveal anyone’s Census responses."

Field Operations, including Census Takers knocking on doors, will resume in June. We will schedule Questionnaire Assistance Sites with our partners’ feedback.

 TEA-6: Type of Enumeration Areas 6 are those locations that do not receive US Postal Service home mail delivery (Like parts of Clarkdale). Your only mail delivery is to a post office box. Census takers will visit those neighborhoods beginning in June to update addresses and drop off questionnaires.  Thank you for your patience!

About the Census
Since the very first United States Census in 1790, every year ending with zero has marked the big job of counting every person living in the United States and its territories. Census Day 2020 is fast approaching, and the Town of Clarkdale wants to make sure every resident is counted. Getting a "complete count" is essential to Clarkdale as the count drives the amount of funding our community receives from the Federal Government.
 
The U.S. Census Bureau wants everyone to know:

  • Every person, every age counts!
  • Personal information is safe, and legally protected.
  • Personal information will not be shared with other government agencies.
  • It’s easy! This year, you can respond online, by traditional paper form or by telephone.
  • We all have a civic duty to do our part and respond to the census.
  • A complete count benefits us all.
The Town is committed to working in partnership with the Census Bureau to count every person living in Clarkdale without regard to citizenship. One way the Town will ensure everyone is counted is by assembling an all-volunteer committee of citizens called a Complete Count Committee (CCC). The CCC is a small group of engaged and active members of the community.  We believe the CCC can bring together the full spectrum of residents, from each neighborhood, special interest, cultural, ethnic and socio-economic group.

On October 25, 2019, staff assembled a five-member Complete Count Committee. Staff worked with the group  in the months leading up to Census Day.  The CCC will start showing up at Town sponsored events (calendar coming soon) to spread awareness throughout the community, answer questions and encourage everybody to be counted.
You can help by spreading the word too.

More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
April 1, 2020 Update:
Due to COVID-19 spread prevention measures,
everyone is encouraged to respond by telephone or online whenever possible.
