Why is there an "early census" that involves mapping the GPS coordinates of my house?
The Census Bureau will hire at least 300 county residents to start the "early census."This early census entails only mapping, verifying and updating addresses. The Census Bureau mails the actual census questionnaire in March 2010.Every residence in the county is entered into the census employees' GPS hand-held computers, he explained.Crew and class leaders warn students that any personal information they collect is strictly confidential and that it is a federal crime to divulge any of that information.Some training graduates said they are worried about standing in front of a stranger's house and aiming a GPS at the house."I was at a house in Camp Verde and the person came running out accusing me of being from ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now,)" one lister, who asked to remain anonymous, said.
ACORN has already been identified as a player in the next census.
