I think certain federal funds are allocated based on population in a state or county or city. Also, the number of representatives to congress could be tipped up or down by population changes -- my state may lose one of its two valuable reps, and then where would we be? So your state might not get as much highway money, or nuclear bombs, or something if they don't know you are there.

like i said, its scare tactics. If they delivered the census to my wife and i then they already know we have two people living at our residence. So there is no reason for a census.

I will mail it in, but i will only fill out that two people live here, my wife and i. thats all they need to know and that is all the census was originally intended to find out anyhow

brckwlt,Yes it is postage paid.I agree with you 100%.On the envelope it states US census form enclosed--your response is required by law--here's a response :yearight: I've learned over the years that you can catch more w/ honey then vinegar--I mean --"Would you please complete this & return it in SASE which is enclosed. Thank you for your time" I'm so sick of this govts. bull,it makes me crazier then I already am---yes,it does include welfare in the county where you live--it also includes highway appropriations plus state monies received by your school district--We up here know that most federal monies go to NYCity--we see squat--on a county level,Cortland Co is the highest rate of welfare recipiants in NY--people move here just for that--but,again,working grunts get squat--I filled mine out in hopes that some of these politicians might steer some of that money where it is needed--not to a bunch of BUMS--bottom line--if we don't reply we can't be counted for anything. Keep the faith young brother---vote,go to your town meetings--keep in touch w/ what's going on around you-------See ya,gotta go boil some sap

2% of the population are "randomly" selected and receive an additional form which is from The American Community Survey (ACS).

Wipe your a** with this one.

Got mine too. What a waste of money, Sending the PRE-letter, let's tell everyone you will be getting the census within the next week or so with a letter, as if we didn't already know it was coming? duh.
Do they do the census every year? I got one last year in the mail, that is the first one I have ever received....

This is the short form. The long form asks how many toilets you have and all kinds of other stupid questions.

There is a $100 fine for every question unanswered to a maximum of $5000.
