  • That its been happening every 10 years for over 100 years? And that it was a big waste of money & postage for them to mail me a letter I got yesterday to tell me that next week I wil be getting a census form in the mail.

  • Anon :35, I agree. I got a letter telling me they were going to send me a letter.... Wow. Then all the stupid TV commercials.....

    There are posters at the library the census bureau put out offering people help filling out the census. Really, it's difficult, name, age, birth date, race..... My kids could have accurately filled them out at 5 or 6 yrs of age.

    I'm not bothered by the census, just the wasted money and stupidity.

  • Something new that has not been happening for 100 years, they will now be noting the GPS coordinates of each household...

  • Ya, I worked as a Crew Leader for the first phase of the Census. You'd think it's simple and not to difficult to understand right? You overestimate our population... you really do.

    And Anon 12:12, they already noted the "GPS coordinates", however it wasn't even close to that detailed and the GPS thing was all sorts of screwed up. I would know, that's the phase I was a crew leader for.

  • I will only tell them how many people live here. Only the information they are legally obligated to. People aren't as stupid as you think, they just don't want the government involved in their lives.

  • I really love the RAP commercials telling people to send it back. Who's the targeted audience there? And could they be any more friggin obvious?
