Did everyone get two census notifications?
Posted by: rgG
Date: March 28, 2020 08:20AM
I remember reading here that at least one other person got two letters from the census, well, so did I.
One was dated March 12, the other March 16.
One was a single fold larger envelope the other was a standard #10.
Why are they wasting time, money, and resources sending two?
I had already filled out the form online well before the second arrived, plus four days is not enough of a lag to be gently reminding people who didn’t respond to the first.
I don’t like waste and I think this is definitely waste.
Just a small 1st world vent. smiling smiley

Yep. We got our second one about a week after the first. Filled out online a couple of days after getting the first one. Your tax dollars at work! smiling smiley

Yep. The original notice with access number and then a reminder.

I think I heard someone say you get a total of four, whether you’ve already done the census or not.

That's just stupid, IMHO.

Got the two letters AND a postcard yesterday. Had this same conversation with my wife last night. Seems like it would be a trivial amount of work to set those mailing lists up to be self-updating.

I got the two different-sized envelopes on the same day, and that also seems to have been the case for the others in my building. Not sure why Census thinks two mailings, of different paper sizes, will increase response—but they do test everything.

Same here. Received a second several days after I had already given my information.

When I opened the second, my first thought was that they never received my data,

I suspect that they needed to print and prepare these for mailing months in advance. Last July when there was a fight over a question for this Census they said that they had to start printing them then. I was expecting that what they were printing actually had questions on it, but these mailers only direct you online.

So, maybe there's even more that will show up, if it's already been printed and prepared for mailing.

Not sure how many notifications came to my place, I haven’t been home in almost a month.

I did call the number on one of the notifications that came where I am staying to get my login code to fill out the form online. Nice person offered to take my info via phone, we were done in around ten minutes.

Calling at 10PM PDT meant practically no wait time!

Got 2. I shredded the second one without opening it since I had already filled out the census online.

I would not want to be a census worker this year. Not just because of the virus, but dealing with the anti-government conspiracy nuts. They have increased exponentially since 2010.
