    But I got stuck doing this stupid thing a couple of months back:
    http://www.census.gov/acs/www/Downloads/ACS-1(info)(2010) Stateside English_web.pdf

    The American Community Survey. Apparently it's required by law. I thought it was the census, which is why I was confused when I started getting all the census info, I thought I had already done it. Anyway, it asked all sorts of information on income, education levels and things like that. I found it to be pretty invasive and if given a choice, I wouldn't have answered any of it besides the number of people living here.

    The website says that 3 million people get selected for this, so I guess I was a lucky one. Maybe jury duty is next on my horizon.

    I got my census form today. *shrug* It's one more damn thing I have to do, along with everything else tomorrow. :freak:

    I haven't gotten an ACS, and I'm not entirely sure I want to do one either. I understand that they are *way* more invasive than the standard census form.

    let's see, they ask your income, thehave your address, they ask what time you go to work and how long it takes to get there, and when you return.

    Of course, government held data is secure and you don't have to worry about door-kickers staealing your stuff half way throough your work day. :upeyes:

    I refer them to the IRS for all financial matters. They get the number of occupants of the residence only.
