    Question Census Day

    How many of you US citizens realize that today, April 1, is Census Day? The day which comes once every ten years, per the Constitution, where every man, woman, and child is (supposedly) counted.

    There hasn't been much said about it. I have seen only two or three PSA's about it over the past month. I did get a postcard telling me how to be counted via the internet. But nothing else.

    Have you been counted? Your state's representation in Congress, and the amount received in federal aid depends on it.

    Consider yourself lucky, we've been bombarded all of March with ads.

    I've already done mine, but I would like to point out their are Census Scams going out. You can tell from the link and the questions asked on the site.

    A normal Census only asks vague questions and for some personal info (name, age, ethnicity, how many people live with you).

    The scam will ask for more personal info (social security number, address, etc.)

    I read a news article that the Republican National Committee sent out a mailing which looked a bit too much like a census form, trying to get donations or such. They stopped after they were caught.

    I'm not a citizen, however my husband filled out ours. They apparently asked about race and ethnicity.
    Ours were a bit odd since he is American, white. I'm Mexican, but still consider my race as white. Our daughter was set as half Ukrainian, half Mexican. Don't know if the option for Ukrainian was there. I didn't get to see more aside from him asking what my race was.

    The software is probably screwed up. They did not have the funds nor took the time to upgrade everything. Plus consider that the government always buys IT from the lowest bidder. Do you know what the technical term is for anything purchased from the lowest bidder? It's Total Sh-t.

    Anyone get the "long form?" I feel cheated. I only got the short one with only three or four questions.

    I would give it a chance to go through. Maybe they had different systems which have trouble connecting with each other.

    If the Census Bureau for whatever reason does not have your info, they should be contacting you. I am not sure how. Usually it is by door-to-door enumerators, but this time no one is going door-to-door.

    It should be enough, if you are sure you submitted the questionnaire properly. Then again, it would be interesting to try to submit it twice to see if you get a message saying your response was already submitted. You would think the program would give you an error message should it record two responses.

    I've lived long enough to go through 4 census counts at this point. I will give this particular census some credit as I was able to complete it entirely online. That being said, I do feel bad for the individuals who were not able to have gainful employment this year since it was all digital. The census use to give the otherwise unemployed a chance to gain some extra money by simply going to people's houses and asking census questions as they did back in 2010. That being said, It was probably best that didn't happen this year considering the coronavirus outbreak. I didn't really get bombarded by census ads, but I also don't watch cable television. I just know that it's required by law, so I responded and kept it moving.

    ^ Having worked with the Census Bureau helping take care of the local office one year, I can tell you those enumerators were not making much money. Certainly not enough to support themselves. Still I guess every little bit helps. Mostly we're talking retirees, students, and bored people.
