I got word from the Census Bureau, who stated that the person involved was working on the decennial census, but that we should have received notice in advance workers would be in the area. We did not.

The county supposedly asked the Census to check on what buildings were down the road. The home down there has been around for many years. This smells more like checking for unpermitted building (or illegal growing) than anything census-related. Not sure why they didnít just have the tax assessor go.

Anyway, the questions got answered straight from the horseís mouth.

The communication from the address providers to the Census is One Way. The Census uses many data sources, USPS, Tax Records, Past Census, Commercial databases.

As Part of the normal verification, they send a Census worker out to see each address (Housing unit) (and look for others). If they find "it" they will send a form to that address (even if it does not have a mail box), They do NOT report back to the County Tax Department if they found something at that address or not.

Also "Advance Notice" is a press release to the local newspaper, Town Government, etc. They don't send "specific Notices" to (you) anyone, just a general, we are in the area and this is what we are doing.

The guy I spoke with said pretty clearly that WE should have gotten a notice.

The Census might not report back to the County about what they find, but the guy said that the County had asked them to check out what was down the road.

Whether they are entitled to a report is different from making a request. And things don’t work here the way they do in most places. Just sayin’...

The county has a vested interest in getting everyone counted. The more heads they find the more representation they get, The more grants, funds etc, they get from federal/state they get based on population.

Also when the "Country" asks the Census to go look there, It not like they are talking to a Census worker, Management. Its a digital list of all properties in there database.

The County is giving a list off all proprieties that they have listed as having a housing unit on, and properties that some sort of permit has been issued for it, But someone may have built a house on that land, or shack, trailer, etc.

My daughter was a Census worker in August for about two weeks (She had just graduated and did this until she found a really good job. But the chronic disorganization of the Census Bureau drove her nuts). And she wandered around neighborhoods verifying addresses.
