Is anyone else involved in the US Census count this year?

+5 votes
I am an enumerator for the US Census this year. Today will be my third day counting given that the count only started nationwide on Thursday. I wanted to see what other experiences people have had given that we are sworn to secrecy.  So no personal info. Only generalizations or personal experiences. I mentioned this on Weekend Chat and their were a lot of questions/ comments. So far I have a day in the Colorado mountains searching for cabins on US Forest Service land and a day in Denver suburbia. Today is another suburbia day.

Other than someone who was doing the urban in Reno, someone that we knew in 1990, who arrived at our door to count us, and a frustrating conversation with a census taker in 1980 who do NOT understand that a Mexican National was still a citizen of Mexico rather than being a naturalized citizen using a Green Card ... we did try us and the citizen of Mexico ... I think the end result was this Mexican citizen marked as a citizen of USA

But that's not the sort of "involvement" you seem to mean
This is important work.  Good luck, Gurney.  Those mountains cabins are hell to find.  I used to live in Summit County, and winding my way through bizarre roads there and in Clear Creek County was a frequently frustrating experience. But that was in the days before GPS, which might help a bit.

I am an Enumerator in Poulsbo, WA.  I use to live in Evergreen, CO west of Denver in the mountains.

I have been impressed by the number of people who are providing answers to the Race and Ethincity questions.  It is very obvious that DNA testing is a big hit.
