Earlier this week there was a knock on the door and a census worker dropped off a plastic bag containing the form with an envelope for its return. I had previously thought that this would come in the mail.
Following are the questions:
1. How many people were living or staying in this house, apartment or mobile home on April 1, 2010?
2. Were there any additional people staying here April 1, 2010 that you did not include in question 1?
3. Is this house, apartment, or mobile home - (multiple choice answers here)
- Owned with mortgage?
- Owned free and clear?
- Occupied without paying of rent?
5. Please provide information for each person living here. Start with a person living here who owns or rents this house, apartment or mobile home. If the owner or renter lives somewhere else, start with any adult living here. This will be person 1.
7. Age on 04/01/2010 and date of birth
8. Of Hispanic, Latino or Spanish origin? (For this census, Hispanic origins are not races) Multiple choice answers include:
- Yes, Mexican, Mexican Am., Chicano
- Yes, Puerto Rican
- Yes, Cuban
- Yes, another Hispanic, Latino or Spanish origin - print origin below
- Black, African Am., or Negro
- American Indian or Alaska Native - print name of enrolled or principle tribe below
- Asian Indian
- Other Asian (print below)
- Native Hawaiian
- Guamanian or Chamorro
- Other Pacific Islander (Print below)
- Some Other Race (print below)
All additional people in the home answer number 5-10 above and one additional question -
How is this person related to Person 1?
- Husband or wife
- Biological son or daughter
- Adopted son or daughter
- Stepson or stepdaughter
- Brother or sister
- Father or mother
- Son-in-law or daughter-in-law
- Other relative
- Roomer or boarder
- Housemate or roommate
- Unmarried partner
- Other nonrelative
So, there are no questions about where anyone was born, parents etc. I wonder if they'd mind if we attached notes to our forms for our future genealogists who might view these later?
