Have You Mailed Your Census Form?

Sun Apr 04, 2010 2:46 pm

Who hasn't, yet? I did, three weeks ago, the same i received it. But somehow i got another form by mail, this past Friday.

I was surprised by i had received two Census form and did some research and found out that the first questionaire may not have been received by the Census folks.

So, what about you guys?

Cheers.

Interestingly, I got another form as well. I guess one wasn't enough. :P

I sent mine out the day I got it. Then I received just a reminder to fill it out if I hadn't already... Regardless, it's in there. I wonder how much larger Uwchlan Twp, PA's population has gotten...

To help increase the mail return rate, the Census Bureau has mailed a second form to households in areas that had low mail response rates (under 60%) in the 2000 Census. Since all forms mailed to households are bar coded, you will not be double counted if you send in both forms. Every 1% increase in the mail response rate saves $85 million in follow up costs, so it’s important to get as many forms as possible back by mail.
