I am sure that in some areas they do not need face to face confirmation and other areas they do.
If not, then why in the OP's video does the census guy need to knock at the door?
but then again, I went through all that on page 2

i live 30 acres and she couldnt figure out of the office, barn, trailer, or house was the "front door". seeing as how they are about 4 acres from each other she had to wait to get ahold of me first.
she was nice, but i thought it was weird that they didnt say anything to her about WHY they wanted to track the doors within 40feet specifically.
seems weird for a census to me...

Then in July if you don't fill out your census form, there will be people being sent out to do it manually. And according to these Title 13 laws (U.S. Code, Title 13) and Title 44(U.S. Code, Title 44, (Section 2108)), you'll be required to answer or they'll send out U.S. Marshalls to collect the info as well.

In order to conduct the decennial census, the Census Bureau needs the address and physical location of each living quarter. Address Canvassing is an operation to improve and refine the Census Bureau's Address List of living quarters before enumeration activities occur in 2010. Address Canvassing ensures the Census Bureau's Address List and maps are as accurate as possible, which will in turn, ensure the enumeration counts are as accurate as possible.
To refine the Address List, field staff, or Listers in the Address Canvassing operation, travel around assigned census blocks in a geographic Assignment Area and look for ever place where people could live, stay, or could live/stay. Listers (the address canvassers) compare what they discover on the ground to what is already in the Census's Address List. Based on the findings, the Lister will verify, update, or delete addresses already on the list, and add addresses missing from the list. At the same time, the Lister will also update maps so they reflect what's on the ground.
All completed Address Canvassing work is reviewed for accuracy in a process called Address Canvassing Quality Control or QC. A separate team of Listers, called QC Listers, conducts the Quality Control Operation.
