The 2010 Census-taker stopped by my house yesterday to confirm the address and enter my coodinates in his handheld GPS machine. No questions asked other than if this was my address. We received one of the "long forms" for the 2000 Census and refused to fill it out. We felt it far too intrusive. We received one of the "interim" forms a few years ago and we again refused to fill it out. In both cases, they gave up after we refused a few times. I understand that the 2010 forms will all be "short forms", supposedly relatively free of the social engineering questions included in the old "long form". How do you folks feel about the upcoming Census and the Census process in general? Do you think the process has been expanded well beyond its original intent - or not? Does it constitute a privacy threat, or is it a valid process to gather critical information really needed by the government to provide funds for our local benefit and congressional representation?
