This spring the U.S. Census will begin going door to door to count every American, but you may also be required to fill out a survey you receive in the mail.
The census says it conducts a number of monthly surveys. They're sent out to hundreds of thousands of Americans at random. Some of the surveys ask personal questions, including your income and social security number. However, the census says it will never ask for money or for your bank account numbers.
"If you are worried at all, you can go online or you can use the phone and call before you participate in anything" said Cameron, spokesperson 2010 Census.
If you want to verify a survey you can call the U.S. Census at 1-800-852-6159.
