Your health and safety are important to us. Everyone on the New York City Housing and Vacancy Survey (NYCHVS) team follows procedures designed to protect both you and them. We have a dedicated, independent Public Health Advisor who is responsible for training our staff, monitoring current conditions here in New York City, and implementing health and safety procedures based on current scientific evidence.

Our NYCHVS interviewers wear face masks and practice social distancing at all times. We ask that you do the same whenever a Census Bureau Field Representative visits you. If you do not have a face mask, we will gladly provide one. If you have any concerns about a Census Bureau Field Representative visiting you at your home, please call us at (212) 584-3490 to request a reasonable accommodation.
