    All of the censuses I worked on were "Special" between the 10 year census which means the towns involved actually paid the Census Bureau to perform them. The reason: Federal Money. This is serious $$$$ in a fast growing area.

    Hope nobody got cranky with you. To my knowledge none of the people I worked with in two states and 5 towns from large to small (not real sure how "bull dog" got the info) ever got testy with occupants.
    Thanks for the reply Jerry, I am just a paranoid gun/bible-clinger so I naturally get worried over reports of census over extensions of duty.

    Like you said, "just a head count" so no need to worry. Thank you for indulging my foolishness with a reply.

    Tool-Slinger, no problem. In fact I grew up with a couple of paranoid gun/(delete the bible part) clingers, but we all came from Michigan. I love guns too but we have some of the most interesting discussions mostly about what the right to bear arms means. Two against one. They usually try to kick my butt. The other favorite topics are religion and politics. Again two against one. Why do I always feel like I'm being picked on? Good thing we go back to 1st or 2nd grade or I would think they don't like me.

    I am going to give you all the best advice you will ever get for dealing with any government agency;

    "Never give any government agency any information on you that they don't already know unless there is a direct and immediate monetary benefit for you to do so."

    Again, I know that you guys are just blowing some steam after a hard day. Those Census workers make small $ and have to knock on strange doors all day - pit bulls, heard of people with guns, some really scary people and places that our female workers frequently handed off to the boss, etc. Right now there are probably a few people who would relish that job for 40 hours/week for maybe 6 months. I know I did it when I had no other income.
    it is required by the constitution for a head count per se, but divulging all of the other info that they want is not.it is not their buisiness how many bed rooms or toilets you have.or what you spend on household expenses. that is whole problem here. i dont think folks care about telling how many live in a house, it is all the other nosy crap that is nobodys business. and by the way,the right to bear arms is just that, the right to bear(carry,show or other wise have on your person). the right to keep means to have in your home or in your posession, to own and have. if you choose not to then that is your right,my right is not to be a victim,to criminals or tyrants,just as the founding fathers INTENDED
