Get counted now or you WILL whine later

Just a reminder, hat tip to Jack at JJP, that the 2010 census is still in progress, inquisitive humans with black bags roaming the streets.

Steve Jost's own words from Huffington Post:
All census workers have taken an oath for life to protect the confidentiality of the data they collect. In addition, by law the Census Bureau cannot share your answers with anyone, not housing authorities, not tax authorities, not law enforcement. Not even the President of the United States can see your answers.

Census workers will be easily identifiable: Each will have an official government badge (identifiable by the seal of the Census Bureau) and a black canvas census bags. [sic]

If you have any doubt about whether the person at the door is a census taker, here is a list of what 2010 census workers will NOT ask you for:

1) Your social security number
2) Any personal financial information
3) To come inside your home
