Did you know that by law, if you are not home when census worker comes to your home to verify how lives in your home, that they are legally allowed to gain access to your home? That’s correct people! If you have not turned in your census form and you are renting a place, the landlord must comply with the census workers request to allow them into your home, even if you are not home.
You can read a little more about this law over on AJC. But it basically says that if your landlord does not grant them access, if they ask for it, then they (the landlord) can be fined $500 for not allowing them into your home! Bob (writer of article on AJC) also goes on to mention that census workers have been requesting peoples private cell phone numbers, getting them, and (in my own words) harassing people for the information requested on the census form!
Makes me very glad that I do not rent an apartment or home!
ETA: Not sure how true this information is, but I’ve seen about 50 articles written today alone about it and so far I didn’t notice any disputing it or saying it is incorrect.
