2010 Census

Today (besides meeting with my crew members) I walked door-to-door for 3 hours. Doesn't sound like much, does it?

But I got lucky and found 12 people home and got questionaires filled out. 4/hr is pretty good, I think, especially as the Census expects the questionaire to take about 10 minutes.

Nothing really remarkable happened (other than so many people being home and being willing to answer my questions) but I did have a case where I put a Notice of Visit on a door, then went to apartments above and found the notice gone when I came back down. And the woman answered the door and kindly answered my questions, which was happy-making.

In that apartment complex, out of 12 apartments, 7 hadn't turned in questionaires and now only one is missing (and that resident is apparently away on business, or so the apartment manager told me - in fact, now I think about it, that means it was VACANT on April 1 and THAT means I am done with that whole building! Yay!)
