    You know of those people that go door-to-door for census

    surveys? Well, they have to go to the addresses that didn't fill out

    the forms and mail them back.

    In all my years of living in several different cities and states, I

    have never seen the US Census Bureau send out surveys, only the door to

    door Census takers. Makes me wonder if what you received is truly

    legitimate? You might want to call the US Goverment's info number from

    your phone book or their website to be safe. There are so many new

    scams popping up to snag your personal info...JMHO

    Actually, we have had a few non-census year counts done in the

    south. One in particular I know of is Conway, AR. The city grew so

    much once Katrina refugees settled there that the city felt it was

    needed. It might be a local census. Even if it is local, the census

    bureau will handle it to make it official.

    Us and my dad got a mail surveys in rural southern AZ and my grandmother also got one in southern California during the last census. We got different ones, the one the my grandmother got wanted all sorts of very personal finacial and asset info, we just got a very basic one and then my dad got one that was somewhere in between. We did verify that all of the different version were legitimate surveys from the census bureau but we could never figure out why "how" got "which" version. We didn't get any door to door people, but we did get calls trying to verify info but I did refuse to give any info because I had no way of verifying who they were or where they were from.

    Is there some reason you _don't_ want to fill this out? This

    information is used in a variety of different ways, not just to get

    some basic information across the nation. For example, in graduate

    school we made use of this information to come up with a group of

    study participants that mirrored certain demographics; we never would

    have been able to do this -- or if we did it would have been a much

    longer and arduous task -- had we not had this census information.

    And we did not see specific information about specific people who

    answered the questions, it was aggregated at the zip-code level (ie,

    here's the percentages of demographic X for zip code 12345).



    I encourage you all to take the time to answer this important survey.



    Please note I have no affiliation with the census or the US Government.



    Thanks,

    Stephanie

    I used to be a census enumerator and we would take the census of the

    people that did not return the Census packets. I liked the job.

    I worked for the Census Bureau during the 2000 Census. They do send out

    forms early, and the type that you get is random. I don't recall for sure

    just when they were sent out, but I do know that there are preliminary

    checks and such that are done, remapping areas to include new streets and

    changes in old ones, etc. I do recall that certain of the more rural areas

    were dealt with first due to the travel aspects and the special issues

    dealing with addresses in rural areas.



    If someone doesn't fill out and return the form by a certain date, then the

    address is listed in the non-response database and that is the listing that

    is used for follow up visits. Sometimes there will be a new house built and

    the address is listed, but since no one lives in it yet, there won't be a

    response. The enumerators will go out and visit the location along with all

    of the other locations that didn't respond in that general area. They report

    back what they find, and it is entered into a database. If someone does live

    in the residence, then they ask in person the questions on the form, or if

    they can't get the information from the resident, then they eventually ask

    the neighbors for the information. So if you want the correct information to

    be given, give it yourselves.



    Some people feel that it is an invasion of privacy, but since our government

    needs to know how many people live in a given area so that representation

    can be properly given to the residents, and government funds can be fairly

    allocated to the local governments responding is most definetely worth your

    time. As for personal info - there is a 72 year gap between the Census that

    is being taken and the time it is released to the public. As for the actual

    forms - after the data is entered, the forms are destroyed - I know this for

    a fact since I was among the last to be layed off from the last census from

    my local office. I managed to stay employed through the teardown/office

    closing period. The government spared no expense - we had cardboard desks -

    I kid you not! I worked in Office Administration, not the field. My crew was

    the ones that entered the data, and printed all of the listings for the

    enumerator crews.



    Hope that this helps,

    Janet

    If you check the Census Bureau's website, you will see that they do many

    "off-year" surveys. THis page, & others you can link to from it, explain

    http://www.census.gov/epct/mso/ (not a hotlink, sorry)

    Hi All! I have been lurking for quite some time but I wanted to respond to this because my husband and I worked for the Census Bureau whenever they ran a special census for our city here in Arkansas (Benton, for Ann in Arkansas ) I do know from working the census that the census that involves the entire US will be done nextin 2010, however states or even cities can hold a special census like our city did 2 years ago(ours did it to increase state funding because our city grew so much). If I had to guess I'd say it was done by your city or state government. You should be able to verify whether it was them or not by calling your city offices (just a note- ours did a door to door census- but they also do mailed paper censuses). Also, all the information in the census are kept confidential for 70 years, nothing we asked could be used for other purposes, we as census takers had to take an
    oath and have a background check before we could even begin the training. Hope this clarifies a few things for you. My husband and I worked the census because we also do genealogy and love looking at the old census and find a great importance in the information thats taken in a census. Beth
