The Census Guy
By now, you should have had a visit from The Census Guy.
What?? Isn't the decennial census next year??
Well, yeah. But the Census Bureau is running a big effort this year to update addresses and find all the new homes constructed since 2000. Not to mention: tents, boats, and railroad cars, if people are living in them.
Yours truly was a Census Guy. For six weeks I walked the streets, ringing doorbells and verifying addresses. The effort (at least in my area) is now complete and my pith helmet is retired.
Total addresses verified: 5,015.
Total locations mapped: about 1,800.
