They are sending out a form called the ACS. This comes WITH the census.
The American Community Survey is an ongoing survey that collects detailed population and housing information from a sample of U. S. households and group quarters (GQ) facilities each month.
The American Community Survey, which replaced the decennial census long form, provides communities with detailed population and housing characteristics every year instead of once every 10 years like the decennial census.
How many automobiles, vans, and trucks of one-ton capacity or less are kept at home for use by members of this household?
How many separate rooms are in this house, apartment, or mobile home?
LAST MONTH, what was the cost of electricity for this house, apartment, or mobile home?

I am not uncomfortable with the questions, I just don't feel it's necessary information for me to give. I won't be filling it out. I will answer how many people and ages, but that's it. Unless there is anything else I am constitutionally bound to answer.

Sure they have a right to ask you. You have a right to refuse. I may fill out some of it, but I refuse to answer any questions regarding political affiliation. THAT can be used to redraw the precinct lines to be in favor of one party or another which I believe should be illegal.
