New Obama Census Strategy – Double Count ‘Selected’ Areas

This is a very disturbing report that opens the possibility that the Obama Administration is planning to double count selected areas in the 2010 Census.


About 40 million “replacement” Census questionnaires are being sent nationwide to households in areas with low mail return rates, even if those households already have returned the first form they received, Census officials announced on Thursday….

Census officials said mailing out a second form is designed to increase census mail participation, get a better headcount for the states, and save taxpayers the cost of sending out census takers to collect information.

The Census Bureau estimates that mailing a second questionnaire “in targeted areas” could save more than $500 million and raise the participation rate by 7 to 10 percentage points.

But what about double counting?

“[P]eople who have completed and returned their questionnaires need not fill out the replacement Census form,” said a news release issued Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau’s Charlotte region. “You should only complete and return one census form,” the release said. “Extra census forms should be discarded.”

William W. Hatcher, a regional director for the U.S. Census Bureau, said both the original forms and the replacement forms are bar-coded “to ensure that people are counted only once and in the right place.”

Many Virginia households are among those receiving a second Census form. The 10-question census forms were mailed to 3.32 million Virginia households in mid-March, and as of April 1, 57 percent of them had been returned, the Charlotte Regional Census Center said.

“The replacement questionnaire is a safety net and a wise investment,” Hatcher said.  “It reminds people who have not mailed back their questionnaires to send it in now.”

Right. And no possibility of any of Obama’s “adoring” fans sending in two forms, right? And is there any doubt as to the political makeup of the areas that received a second form?

  1. Sounds like much to do about nothing.

    The bar code prevents double counting.

    Why not worry about something real for a change? Like maybe corporate control of the US media and the US government, or big AG and our taxes being used to promote unhealthy processed food, and endless war that destroys families all over the planet?

    There are a bunch of real problems out there that deserve our attention and energy to make positive changes that will make better lives for our friends and families

      Yet they admit sending out duplicates. How could that happen? Oh. Human error.

      And what happens if a duplicate IS detected, and the two are different? Do they add the two together? Hold them up to the light looking for the “intent” of the person?

      And what if people moved and the names are not the same? A baby was born?

      Sorry. The Democrats have become experts at stealing elections. Looks like they are setting up to steal a Census. We may have to retake this in 2013 after Obama is gone to get an accurate count.

      I have forwarded my concerns to a friend with the Senate on Capitol Hill to try to nip this obvious irregularity in the bud.

      You do not get two ballots, you should not get two census forms. If the first is not turned in, a letter telling them if they do not turn it in, a government worker will be scheduled to visit. 1.2 million Census workers are going to need to find something to do.

      This is fraud and if a Republican were president you would be squealing like a stuck pig.

      There are no problems more important than the systematic takeover of the country by Progressive Socialists.

      And FYI, Corporations have not taken control of the media and the government, the government has taken control of the media and 51% of private business.

      Grow your own food, or go picket Obama to stop the war. Both of these have been going on for decades.

      The Progressives are the only clear and present danger facing this country. Period.

      And just so you know, our “taxes” are not supporting anything. Yet. Obama is borrowing most of the money. Our kids will get stuck with the bill.

    I really doubt that this is some orchestrated political ploy coming from Obama himself. I do think that there are some over-paid, under-thinking people running the U.S. Census Bureau.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
