Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15 People

    Used To Work For Them 10 Yrs Ago

    BTW, if you do work for them this time around and you do the thing w/ the maps- count each one you do. They do NOT tell you that at the beginning- only at the end. Just an FYI. And my impression of the census manager types were that they were gung ho on the census being important...

    How Many Rooms/bedrooms

    and WTF does this have to do w/ schools? Elder care? roads? Seriously. Wish I had the balls to answer the number of people in residence and return the form. Period. And why are bathrooms *excluded* as rooms?

    They Won't??? Ask Abt Finances?

    On the news tonight they were talking about the census and how workers will be coming around if you do not answer. And they are saying they *won't * ask your SSN or about finances (looking out for fraud). Well that's just not true- the census asks a whole helluva lot about...
