Not to worry this census has a huge pull of money & the early projected costs were only $184million for salaries & expenses but then again postage rates probably went up. If thats salaery & expenses it makes you wonder what the rest is spent on?

Constitutionally, yes, the census must be done every ten years. It is supposed to be a simple head count to adjust the number of members of the House of Representatives.

How many toilets you have, how many cars you own, and how much money you make has nothing to do with your Congressional representation.

I particularly like how they waste money sending you a letter telling you that you will be getting a census in the mail in the next week.

You have no idea how much money is being wasted in this process. My son is in LA and has been working with them. The hiring process is an even bigger waste of taxpayer dollars, I am appalled at what he has told me. :shock:

From what I`ve been able to find so far is that the 2010 census is going to be a short form only census, the first time since 1940. I`ve seen that in several different places.
