Just filled out my 2010 Census form. It was hardly anything at all given that I'm the only human in this apartment. I thought they'd at least want to know what sort of dwelling I was in but I guess not.

I remember it being quite a long but fun process. Of course that's from the census of 1980. My mom sat me down and walked me through filling it out for our family that year. It was where I learned about racial identification since I grew up in an almost entirely white place. Of course I was filling it out for three people so I guess it would have been a slightly longer process in any case.

No memory at all of the census in 1990 and 2000. I was at college and then I was living on my own. Not sure if I filled anything out or not.

Have you been counted census-wise? Is this the first time?


  1. yup. i totally thought it'd be a bigger dealio. one page. check check check. back in the mail the same day I got it. done and done.

  2. This is the first one I am participating in myself. Last time I was in college, and the previous two I was a kid living with my folks. I, too, thought there would be more info captured on the sheet but I was geekily excited to be filling it out for myself.
