    From what I understand, the long form no longer exists. They are relying exclusively on the American Community Survey to provide the long-form data. Basically, they are sacrificing a little bit of accuracy in order to update the long-form descriptive information every 2-3 years. I believe they have funding so that the ACS will address all CDPs rather than just those of a certain size.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Just got off the phone with a census hirer. Looks like I'll start training at the end of the month. When I had originally replied they said they would call early March but I guess that wasn't too accurate.
