Got your census?

We keep seeing the “full out your census form and send it in” comments in a range of places, but with a glitch: We haven’t seen our form yet.

Tried calling a census office to find out what the situation is, and got referred to another office, where all we got was a telephone answering machine.

Have other people been getting their census forms? Or not?

UPDATE A friend from Roseburg writes to say that he hasn’t gotten his form either – and gives an indication as to what we may have in common: The post office doesn’t deliver to our houses, only to our post office boxes. It’s a mail system that works perfectly well (for us in Carlton at least) but might be confounding the census bureau, might may be sending a lot of people to addresses that could be reached via box.

    Our form arrived more than 2 weeks ago.
    As seen on

    Yours seems to be missing in action.

    Do you suppose 10 years from now they’ll still use the Postal Service for primary distribution? Could be a simple web form, or a cellphone text app, with some sort of kiosk for folks who can’t deal with one or the other.

    This time around though, it’s been a nice shot in the arm for the P.O. 3 pieces of mail to EVERYBODY, that’s a big number.
