Its the freaking census... Some of you guys are extremely paranoid

Ok you think so, my friend is a manager for the census. He has over 150 enumerators. His turnover rate is about 20%emery two weeks. That's because of the crack heads that they employ. Dint get me wrong there are some eay good people filling these jobs as well, but which one is knocking on your door? He has had to fire 2 in his group after they found out that they were level 2 sex offenders. Are we really all that paranoid or do you just have your head in the sand?

I enjoy dodging the census.

The one who visited my home was lucky my wife talked with her instead of me. I was already ticked off at the census because:
1 They did not send us a form.
2 When we called to request a form, they said it was too early, call back at a later date.
3 When we finally got through at the later date, They sent the form, which we filled out(answering all questions) and sent it back to them.
4 When my wife told the worker that we had sent in the form, she was told it was received too late to be counted.
I'd have told her I'd already answered the questions and I wasn't answering any more.
And, yes, we live in a very rural area because we value our privacy. I wish I'd been out at my home range shooting my .223 Saiga or 1911 pistol when she drove up.

The census people that came to my neighborhood were very nice and polite.

My beef with the census is that is goes beyond the simple "enumeration" required by the Constitution. I'm happy to provide information about how many people live at my address and whether it is a single- or multiple-unit dwelling (obvious by observation in my case), but they don't need my name, phone number or birth date to fulfill the "enumeration" info needed.

Same here, but I still sent them away - all 3 times they showed up.

+1 Although I do somewhat understand the birth date question, helps determine the age demographics.

Are those the only questions you had, or the only questions you answered?

It's About Census Worker Arrogance
This isn't really about the Census per se, but about the arrogance of workers. They feel "muy importante" with their job and allow it to go to their heads as if they have some real power. It's a job, not an adventure.
On the other hand, I'm a field worker for a County Elected Official and we constantly are confused with Census workers so I can understand it from the "other' side of the coin. Many of the folks I deal with are getting a tad annoyed at the workers, their attitude and the intrusion into their lives.
Census workers need to use a bit more common sense when dealing with the public. Just do your job and quit thinking you are something you are not.

Never got a form in the mail, haven't had anyone show up (yet). Maybe I don't exist, or they just plain forgot about me. Now if I can get the bill collectors to forget about me.
shhhhh, librarian packing

Hey, it was a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor, no need to be upset over it.
