All Things Considered, July 31, 2006 · Two-and-a-half years from now, in early 2009, the Census Bureau plans to send an army of 100,000 temporary workers down every street and dusty, dirt road in America. They will be armed with handheld GPS devices. Robert LaMacchia, head of the Census Bureau's geography division, says they'll capture the latitude and longitude of the front door of every house, apartment and improvised shelter they find. "We will actually knock on doors and look for hidden housing units," he says. "We will find converted garages; from the outside, it may not look like anybody lives there." But census workers will add each dwelling, legal or not, to the Census Bureau's Master Address File.

this is a new one. they aren't really supposed to be asking questions yet because the real census hasn't started. that's the first time i've heard of them asking personal questions. how many live there is a personal question in my book.

So I am confused....they would take coordinates of garages and barns and sheds, that kind of thing? I live in a rural area and haven't seen the census ppl, but if they wanted to do coordinates of every dwelling in the country...?> that's weird and makes no sense. I thought this was just for demographic information wtf does garages and other stuff have to do with it? What a lollerskate
